Fashioning the Future Exhibition at Canary Wharf

10th November 2011 Print

Canary Wharf is to celebrate sustainable fashion in all its forms, as the iconic destination hosts the ‘Fashioning the Future’ Awards on 10 November. This leading international platform for innovation in sustainable design is the only student competition of its kind, designed and coordinated by the Centre for Sustainable Fashion at London College of Fashion. Finalists will be featured in a major exhibition in the spectacular East Wintergarden. 

Camille Waxer, Chief Administrative Officer at Canary Wharf Group comments “Canary Wharf Group is recognised as one of the country’s top ‘green’ companies.  Working with the London College of Fashion offers an opportunity to support both emerging designers and innovative ways to protect our future.”

The Awards, now in its third year, links a host of fashion institutions worldwide to bring together a global community of creative thinkers, designers, innovators and entrepreneurs - all aiming to help the fashion industry steer a course for the future. The winners will be judged by a stellar panel, including: supermodel Erin O’Connor; Eduardo Escabedo of the UN; author Lucy Siegle; Chairman of the British Fashion Council Harold Tillman and eco pioneer Jo Wood.

Winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony hosted by Caryn Franklin on 10 November, before the exhibition of works opens to the public.
