Last year Healthy Seas partner MEDASSET organized in a Greece a Fashion Design Competition and Exhibition.

The garments designed and presented in the exhibition have all been created by students and recent graduates of the Fashion Department of AKTO College of Art and Design. They were finalists in the competition “Healthy Seas: A Journey from Waste to Wear” Fashion Project. Each outfit incorporates fabric made from ECONYL® yarn, used either on its own or in combination with other environment-friendly materials.

The fishing nets collected by our volunteer divers and fishermen are transformed and regenerated into ECONYL® yarn, a high-quality raw material used to create beautiful new products by the fashion or carpet industry.

Now, this exhibition with the clothes made by fashion designer students was on display at the Fashion Revolution Greece event in Athens last weekend, on 19 November. Healthy Seas was also part of the sustainable fashion panel discussion with the Fashion Project.

Fashion Revolution is a global movement. They celebrate fashion as a positive influence while also scrutinising industry practices and raising awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues. They aim to show that change is possible and encourage those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion.

Fashion Revolution is only four years old and already the world’s largest fashion activism movement.
