Heineken Lagos Fashion Week in collaboration with Style House Files and Fayrouz presents the 3rd edition of the Green Access competition.
Green Access is a talent discovery platform by Lagos Fashion Week with the vision to encourage designers to create social, economic and environmentally sustainable fashion brands. With responsibility at its core, Green Access aims to inspire young creatives to consciously begin to explore sustainable ways of achieving their creative goals while simultaneously discovering new talent. Green Access alumni such as Pepperrow, Elexiay, Labake Lagos, and Maliko separate themselves from their contemporaries through adopting sustainable practices such as upcycling, zero waste, and working with craft communities.
This year, Green Access will host virtual and physical workshops that will run for 6-8 weeks. The workshops will be facilitated by stakeholders who will discuss a range of topics that address the growing demand for more traceable and transparent practices and the need for fashion to be designed with the thought of resource efficiency, biodegradability and recyclability in mind.
The top 5 Green Access finalists will be commissioned to design a collection that will be showcased on the Lagos Fashion Week Runway in October 2021.
Applications close 30th August 2021.
