2021/22 Design Brief

DESIGN FOR YOUR HERO

 

Who is your hero? Is it a fashion icon or an athlete or an artist or family member? This year we want you to celebrate your hero by designing them an outfit that embodies your interpretation of sustainability.

Your hero’s outfit must be fit for a purpose. For example, is you hero an environmental advocate? How can they communicate their message with what they wear? We want you to be as creative and innovative as possible. Let your ideas run wild!

Wool should be the hero fibre, making up at least 70% of the outfit. Your outfit should consist of 1 to 4 pieces. Be sure to address the elements of the brief and considerations of your end user.

We can’t wait to see what unique and inventive talent is out there.
