Schools Competition 2022

Calling all budding fashion designers, the ICHF Events annual Schools Fashion Design Competition is open for entries! This competition looks to showcase students work from schools and colleges encouraging future designers to think innovatively and

The theme for this year’s competition is ‘Re-sewn Fashion’. Upcycling is one of the most important trends in the fashion industry today. The frightening facts about the environmental and ethical impact of the garment industry have become inescapable. In case you are not familiar with the upcycling fashion concept, it involves using pre-existing clothing, accessories and other items and re-constructing them into new garments. The benefits include sustainability, cheaper wardrobes and uniqueness.

The competition will be judged on Friday 18th at our Fashion & Embroidery Show at The NEC (17-20 March) 2022 and finalists’ garments will be paraded on the lunchtime catwalk, worn either by the students themselves, (or by a model).

This competition is now closed
