If you get first place, you’ll win $750, an ad in E Magazine, and a profile on the fffashion website. Second and third place winners will receive $500 and $250, respectively.
The main eco-requirement is that the garment needs to be fur-free — an easy task since most clothes, whether conventional or eco-friendly, just don’t contain fur. Still, since the judges — Sophie Uliano, author of Gorgeously Green; Summer Rayne Oaks, eco-model; and Brita Belli, editor of E Magazine — are all environmentally-committed women, I’m guessing additional eco-features in the fashion entries will earn bonus brownie points.
