Aspiring eco-fashion designers now have a new chance to showcase their ethical style. The Fur Free Fashion Competition
wants to see your best garment that will “help promote the ethical and environmental benefits of foregoing fur fashion.” (via Fashion, Evolved
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.
