The Circular Design Challenge, launched in August at the Winter Festive 2018 edition of LFW in collaboration with the UN Environment as a part of R Elan’s ‘Fashion for Earth’ initiative, received 900 entries from over 30 cities in India. In November 2018, a shortlist of 8 designers was announced who presented their collection at LFW summer resort 2019, today, and the eminent jury has selected the winner.

The award and a cheque of Rs. 20 lac was presented by Mr Gunjan Sharma, CMO Polyester Business Reliance Industries Ltd. in the presence of Mr Atul Bagai, Country Head, UN Environment India and Mr Jaspreet Chandok, Vice President, Head of Fashion IMG Reliance, to Stephano Funari and Poornima Pande for their label I WAS A SARI.

Reliance Industries Ltd.’s (RIL) ‘Fashion for Earth’ programme collaborated with UN Environment and LFW to launch the Circular Design Challenge to encourage designers and entrepreneurs to use innovative ideas by using materials from diverse waste sources including plastic. This initiative unraveled the country’s first award for circularity in fashion promoting sustainability across the value chain and, inspiring innovation and offering solutions to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion and textile industry in the country. The award is a recognition of the environmental champions of tomorrow in the Indian fashion and textiles industry.

The 8 shortlist designers who showcased their collections, demonstrated creativity, innovative usage of waste and ability to adopt sustainability and circularity in their collections.

From over 900 registrations and 30 different cites of India, the 8 finalists unveiled their collections before a jury that comprised eminent personalities in the business of fashion, environment and sustainability:

I am pleasantly surprised to see the collections of all shortlist participants as the creativity quotient has transformed the circularity and sustainability outlines into workable fashion.”

CDC jury member and UN Environment India, Country Head, Atul Bagai said,“It is evident from the sustainable collections showcased in the Circular Design Challenge that circularity in fashion has unprecedented benefits not just for the fashion industry and business but also for the environment. Circular fashion can and should be mainstreamed to drastically reduce the fashion and textile industry’s environmental footprint.”

The fabulous collections displayed here have further bolstered our view that the initiatives like Circular Design Challenge is providing the enormous opportunities for budding concept creators, fashion designers and the entire textile value chain to exhibit their innovative ideas, designs with a focus on circularity and sustainability. We are confident that our various initiatives will help transform the entire Indian textile value chain to become a global leader in embedding circularity in their business strategy and operations.”
