Description

Join us on May 27th as we celebrate the future of fashion at Design Forward: Canada's Sustainable Fashion Award, presented by Pure + Simple.

Our quest to find the top Canadian fashion designer who has struck the perfect combination of style + ethics, has led us to select 10 semi-finalists who will each show 3 looks in a runway presentation. From there, these semi-finalists will move on to face our jury of fashion industry experts who will select one winner + 2 runners up. These 3 finalists will present a second time in Fall 2017, where the top designer will be awarded a prize valued at $50,000.

Congratulations to our 10 semi-finalists:

  • Bronwyn Seier
  • Eliza Faulkner
  • Jennifer Glasgow
  • Lisa Aviva
  • Noémiah
  • Omi Woods
  • Peggy Sue Collection
  • Stevie Crowne
  • TJ Indigo Clothing Co.
  • Triarchy

In addition, we are excited to be awarding Annie Thompson with our special Vanguard Award. Annie has not only been leading the Canadian fashion design community for more than 30 years, but she has also managed to keep her production local, while also sourcing upcycled and sustainable materials. In addition, Annie has gone above and beyond promoting the sustainable fashion movement. We are thrilled to be recognizing and celebrating Annie’s success at this year’s runway presentation!

Come out and witness history in the making!

Mingle with fashion industry influencers, eco-conscious consumers, Canadian fashion designers, media and bloggers. Enjoy local and eco-friendly drinks, bid on sustainable fashion and beauty products in our silent auction, and take home some green swag. Bring in your used clothing for collection and you could win some great prizes in the H&M Green Carpet Challenge!

The money raised at this year's event will help us expand our offering to our growing membership community.
