Kering and LCF reveal winners of 2016 Kering Award
Kering and the London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion announced the five winners of the 2016 Kering Award for Sustainable Fashion at an event on Monday 14 November.
Irene-Marie Seelig, Iciar Bravo Tomboly, and Ana Pasalic for Stella McCartney; and students Agraj Jain and Elise Comrie for Brioni were selected from over 400 applicants and ten finalist projects.
“All students, coming from different academic disciplines and personal backgrounds, showed a deep commitment to fashion and the environment, along with a strong interest to more sustainable practices in business in general,” said Kering.
This year’s wining projects explored sustainability in various ways, including the creation of new materials such as mushroom skin, cruelty-free silk; the development of new sustainable processes to improve dyeing techniques and a tool to measure and increase the social impact of a company.
Winners were offered grants to support their work and internship opportunities within Stella McCartney and Brioni.
Next year’s awards will be hosted by Gucci and Stella McCartney.
