The College of Fashion & Design in Dubai has launched a Save The Amazonia design competition to inspire students to engage in social issues.
Jessica Galeano from CFD Dubai tells Grazia, "Our main focus is to raise awareness about the importance of the Amazon and the impact it can have on climate change. As educators, we also have a huge role to play, teaching and encouraging students about sustainable development and how to use fashion to express their concern about environmental issues. We believe that through education we can motivate the next generation to embrace the cause and work on finding solutions to save our planet."
The competition will be judged by CEO and Co-Founder of Fashion Foward Bong Guerrero, Creative Director of Aavva, Vincenzo Visciglia, and influencer Natalia Shustova, and the three winning looks will be put into production and be on display at Fashion Forward in November.
