Students and budding creatives from across North Yorkshire are invited to enter YFW’s first ever major sustainable design competition. As fast fashion continues to reign and the amount of textile waste remains significant, the initiative is challenging designers to explore ways of repurposing and remodelling PPE and discarded clothing, transforming it into innovative and stylish statement pieces.
