Mock up drawing from student submission

The Rubbish Renewed garment submission deadline has come and gone and we were blown away by the quality and quantity of submissions this year! The adult garment slots filled up with the most diverse designs yet. And we had almost 50 student submissions from 10 schools for only 20ish student spots. Decisions were tough for the jury, but found sticking to the criteria the way to narrow the field:

  • Furthering Rubbish Renewed Mission – Description & piece communicates Transforming trash, inspiring community for a sustainable earth
  • Use of Materials – Transformation of trash into fashion. Shows attention to manipulation of materials.
  • Design – Coherence; Innovative techniques; unique aesthetics; creative expression.
  • Quality of Construction – Construction methods inspire long-term use.

Every design met at least 2 of these criteria, but the ones that made the cut, focused on all.

Thank you submitting designers for your dedication to the planet, to quality, sustainable fashion, and belief in making a difference one small action at a time.
