September 29, 2022
This past summer, the Fashion Zone and Consulate General of India hosted a fashion contest and invited fashion designers to design and create garments using Khadi fabric. Here's a quick recap of how the event went!
Hosted by the Fashion Zone and Consulate General of India, the FZ x CGI fashion competition invited designers to design in celebration of India’s textile and manufacturing industry through an Indian textile-centered competition and fashion show. Based on creativity, ideation, and quality of designs, 10 designers were selected and instructed to design and sew an outfit made from Khadi fabric. The garments were then displayed and showcased at Holt Renfrew in Square One. A winner was then selected on the day of the fashion show and was awarded $5000, along with a year of incubation at the Fashion Zone valued at $3000.
The Fashion Zone and Consulate General of India have worked hard to organize the event. With careful consideration between the judges Lorenzo D'Andrea (General Manager, Holt Renfrew), Smt. Apoorva Srivastava (Consul General, Consulate), and Vicky Milner (Founder, Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards), the winning garment was selected.
Congratulations to Charlotte Carbone and Cassandra Myers and their fashion garment titled “Paisley Skin”! Their garment design was a brilliant fuse between decolonization, sustainability, and everything in between. Huge congratulations to all the other contest participants as well. You are all winners and your hard work won’t go unnoticed!
