EFWA is accepting submissions from designers to create one unique look using men's shirts

Eco Fashion Week Australia (EFWA) is now accepting submissions from designers around the world to create one unique look using men’s shirts for the return of the Upcycling Challenge by Marilyn R. Wilson. Accepted submissions will be featured on the runway at the second annual event in November, in two states: Nov. 4 – 10 in Port Douglas, Queensland; and Nov. 15 – 21 in Perth, Western Australia.

The Upcycling Challenge provides an opportunity for sustainable designers to gain international attention, and to encourage designers who are currently not using sustainable practices to give it a try. The Challenge also promotes EFWA’s mandate to ?Reduce, Reuse and ?Recycle ? garments rather than have them sent to a landfill. Note – this challenge is only open to ‘new submissions,’ and former participants are excluded.

“I can’t wait to see what new and exciting designs the 2018 EFWA Upcycling Challenge will offer,” said the EFWA Upcycling Challenge brainchild, Marilyn R. Wilson, “ and I want to thank everyone in advance for taking the time to submit.”

EFWA fashion stylist ?Dalija Valhjov, will be receiving the garments, setting the show order and doing the model fittings/show styling this year.
“We’re so excited to have Dalija play such an intricate part of the challenge this year,” said Wilson.
