About Frontline Fashion
Ever wondered what it’s like for designers working on the frontline to make our clothes more sustainable? Frontline Fashion follows 10 talented Asian and European emerging fashion designers determined to change the future of fashion - currently one of the most polluting industries - for the better in the world’s biggest sustainable fashion design competition, The EcoChic Design Award.
As they descend into Hong Kong for the design battle of their lives, all eyes are on the first prize; to design an up-cycled collection for China’s leading luxury brand, Shanghai Tang. But before they meet the region’s fashion elite on the Hong Kong Fashion Week runway, the designers must prove they have what it takes to transform the industry’s polluting ways by tackling waste at a discarded clothing warehouse and going behind the scenes at one of the biggest shirt manufacturers in the world. As the 10 designers vie for the winning position, they prove that when it comes to sustainable fashion, there is no need for a compromise in style. But there can only be one winner…

We achieve this via educational sustainable fashion shows, exhibitions, competitions, seminars, research and media outreach. Our unique profile allows us to collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders. We work with multiple fashion designers, textile and garment manufacturers, retailers, schools and universities, multilateral organizations, governments, NGOs, financial institutions and media organizations.
