Chelsea graduates shortlisted for Sustainable Fashion competition

Clothes made from recycled cotton paper, exquisite design that need less laundering, hand crafted luxurious hemp satin pieces and hand-knitted pieces that are fastened onto basic wardrobe staples to create a completely adjustable wardrobe to cherish. These are just some of the winning ideas from this year’s Fashioning the Future Awards, organised by the Centre for Sustainable Fashion.

Several Chelsea/TED graduates were shortlisted in the competition including Lauren Palmer (MA 2009) a finalist in the 'Water - the Right for all Citizens' award and Julia Roebuck (BA 2008), a finalist in the 'Role of Materials in a Sustainable Fashion Industry' award.
