Launching the 2019/20 Student Design Awards

ย 

Our clothes are some of our most treasured possessions: they keep us warm, dry and protected; they help us feel comfortable, to fit in and show affiliation, or to stand out and show difference.

ย 

However, the global fashion industry is fraught with problems, from waste to water pollution, problems which cannot be fixed with tweaks to the current system. Instead we need a new future for fashion, and we need design skills to help make that change.


To mark the launch of the 2019/20 RSA Student Design Awards, a panel of design, systems-thinking and fashion futures experts will bring a range of perspectives on how we can accelerate the transition to a regenerative fashion industry.

ย 

The event will be followed by a drinks reception in the Benjamin Franklin Room.

ย 

The RSA Student Design Awards is a global competition focused around a set of project briefs that challenge participants to tackle the big issues of our time through design thinking.

ย 

This event is scheduled in conjunction with the Ellen MacArthur Foundationโ€™s Make Fashion Circular, in partnership with the RSA. With special thanks to the players of Peopleโ€™s Postcode Lottery for their support.
