Applications are now open for the Innovation Awards for Ethical Fashion

This global initiative is a leading ethical fashion business competition, aiming to promote and support inspirational and fresh new talent in fashion design and sustainability. This year The Fairtrade Foundation has joined forces with the Ethical Fashion Forum to launch a 'Fairtrade cotton' category sponsored by Tesco. The competition will be judged by fashion model and UK Vogue blogger, Laura Bailey. Winners have the opportunity to be showcased at leading UK trade shows, and promoted to buyers and press. The winner of the Fairtrade Cotton Award will be invited to work with the F&F brand at Tesco.

Deadline for applications is Sunday, June 13, 2010 at 1700.
