Trashion in Action Competition Guidelines

The Wildly Creative Trashion in Action Competition is a sustainable fashion design contest for Malaysian youths wherein participants are stimulated to think about societal responsible fashion designs in the fashion industry. The passion and the deep–rooted love for fashion are now being complemented with consumers saying “no” to conventional dyes and pesticide-doused fabrics that are harmful and wasteful to the environment. There are also many kinds of current sustainable fashion designs which utilizeds used and upcycled materials. The new currency is to unite everyone’s efforts in switching to recycling clothes, and to use natural alternatives of health and environmental sustainability and still being “fashionably trendy”.

This year's Anugerah Hijau 2012 sustainable fashion competition has a theme and it is "Wildlife and its Habitat".This simply means that the creative and styling of the design must be related to wildlife. You could create a design from newspaper or plastics in tiger stripe colors for instance.

The designs will be judged on creativity and how well it encourages young Malaysians to choose sustainable options within the fashion industry. Design submittals should be uploaded along with the registration form before Friday, May 18th 2012. See the competition communication materials, competition guidelines and registration form to enter the competition.

Everyone with a vision on ‘the future of fashion’ can register as an individual or team (maximum 3 members) for the competition up until 18th May 2012.

All you have to do is sketch your design, describe the kind of materials you might be using and also the overall styling.
