Buoyed by the success of establishing itself as India's first and largest Sustainable Fashion Award, the ‘Circular Design Challenge’ has now launched its second edition—continuing its focus on circular economy through design and fashion. The award puts a spotlight on and offers solutions to reduce environmental impact of fashion and textile industry.

Inspiring innovation through a circular economy approach that eliminates waste, the Circular Design Challenge edition one was launched at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018 in partnership with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and as part of Reliance Industries Limited’s R Elan ‘Fashion for Earth’ initiative.

The Circular Design challenge, open to all fashion/accessory designers and entrepreneurs in India, aims to recognise environmental champions of tomorrow. The registration for the challenge is now open till November 15, 2019.

“The tremendous successes and recognition to ‘I Was A Sari’ has inspired many young talents to participate in the second edition of Circular Design Challenge, who are inquiring with us and eagerly awaiting the launch. Their wait is over now as we launch the second edition of Circular Design Challenge. I am sure the challenge will become tougher this year as the number of participants across the textile value chain is expected to increase," said Vipul Shah, COO-Petrochemical Business, RIL, while launching the CDC edition-2.

"We are eager to see the innovative use of materials and designs that will bring out sustainability and circularity, aesthetics and scalability aspects. We are confident that the CDC will set the stage for drastically reducing the negative impact of textile and fashion industry on the environment,” Shah added.

"UNEP is proud to partner with CDC award for the second year in succession. At the UN, we see circularity in fashion a major area of focus for achieving our Sustainable Development Goals. Encouraged by last year’s entries we look forward to having more innovative ideas and designs with focus on circularity and sustainability,” said Atul Bagai - Country Head, UNEP India.
