The Relove Fashion competition is a Sustainable Fashion competition open to all secondary school students in the Eastern, Midlands and Dublin region. The competition was developed and is funded through a partnership between the Eastern and Midlands region local authorities and the Rediscovery Centre, Ireland’s National Centre for the Circular Economy.
The Relove Fashion Competition was developed in response to the growing environmental and social impacts of the Fashion Industry and the need for change. It encourages applicants to take a deeper look at how their clothing is made and challenges them to explore creative reuse options such as upcycling, repairs, alterations and mending. Students are asked to use their creative design skills to create a sustainable and wearable outfit. Entrants should source clothing from a charity shop, swap shop or reuse items already available at home.
All submissions should include a Finished Outfit, Before and After photos, a completed Submission Form, a Storyboard outlining the journey and the design process involved in the creation of the outfit from start to finish, and Video of the outfit.
