It’s your chance to challenge fast-fashion norms and herald the sustainable design revolution. If you’re prepared to make your mark on the industry and contribute to a more sustainable future, the allfashion Sourcing Young Designer Competition 2023 is the perfect platform.

Borrowing, Transforming, and Returning as opposed to Extracting, Using, and Discarding. It’s about asking the right questions and requesting disclosure from all supply chain and brand partners, to feel confident and good about what’s going out into the world in your name.

More and more young designers are becoming involved in and embedding sustainable thinking right at the core of their creative design processes: from smaller production models to amazing up-cycling techniques, to innovation in business models regarding scale, quality over quantity, modular design, and longevity.

It is the brave, courageous young designers who are defying all stereotypes and inventing a new fashion industry: smaller, slower, more spontaneous, built on totally different attitudes.

Can you explore efficient ways to design to minimise waste? Consider leather from an African perspective, it could be an accessory to your garment or a part of your look. Think about up-cycling, zero waste? Could you incorporate end-of-life solutions such as mending and repairing, remember we are living with load-shedding. Are you considering solutions around this?

There is no one set way of working, or one set of rules that define what ‘Responsible’, ‘Ethical’, or ‘Sustainable’ fashion is. By defining for yourself these principles and intentions, specifically for your business, they can become more meaningful and authentic.

We want to see how you design with thinking about a slower future in mind!



Understanding the Brief & Creating Your Design

This first phase of the competition requires participants to comprehend and reflect upon the design brief. The central theme for this year, “Designing Towards a Slower Future”, presents an opportunity to incorporate sustainability into your creative process. You’re expected to grasp the essence of this brief, and your subsequent designs should reflect your understanding and personal interpretation of this theme.


Designing the Elements

Once you’ve thoroughly understood the brief, it’s time to channel your ideas into tangible elements. This phase involves crafting a trend mood board that represents your innovative and sustainability-focused design vision. In addition, you’ll need to illustrate your proposed garment with a detailed technical drawing, showcasing both the front and back view. The illustration should include all design details, the trims used, and their sourcing information. Also, you’ll need to articulate your understanding of designing towards a slower future in a motivation statement not exceeding 500 words.

Element 1

Trend MoodBoard:

Your mood board should visually express your understanding of the competition theme and display your unique design perspective and sustainable approach. The mood board will be judged on its ability to clearly articulate the theme, its creative representation of sustainability in design, and innovative concept presentation.

Judging Criteria for Trend Mood Board: Judges will assess your mood board based on the clarity of the theme representation, innovative demonstration of sustainable design concepts, and creative idea presentation.

Create a trend mood board that encapsulates your interpretation of sustainable fashion, showcasing your unique design philosophy.

A mood board is a visual tool that helps you curate and communicate your creative ideas and visions. Here are some key elements you should consider when creating a mood board for your design:

  • Theme Consistency: Your mood board should reflect the theme and concept of your design. In this case, the theme of the competition is “Designing Towards a Slower Future”. Make sure the images, colours, and textures you choose align with this theme.
  • Colour Palette: Choose a colour scheme that fits with your design concept. The colors should evoke the emotions and mood you want to associate with your design.
  • Textures and Materials: Include images or samples of fabrics, materials, and textures that you intend to use or that inspire your design.
  • Inspirations and References: Your mood board can include images, artworks, environments, or historical references that inspire your design. It can also include images of similar designs or elements that you want to incorporate in your design.
  • Typography and Keywords: If relevant, include some words or quotes that inspire or describe your design. Choose typography that reflects the mood of your design.
  • Sketches and Illustrations: Your own sketches or illustrations can be a great addition to your mood board, they can help express your ideas and how you plan to bring your design to life.
  • Detailing and Trims: If there are specific design details or trims that are key to your design, represent these on your mood board.
  • Sustainability Aspects: As this is a major part of the brief, your mood board should reflect the sustainability aspects of your design.

Remember, a mood board is a personal and creative expression of your design concept, so it should reflect your unique style and vision. Lastly, make sure it is well-organized, cohesive, and aesthetically pleasing as it serves as a visual representation of your design idea.

Element 2

Garment Illustration & Technical Drawing:

You are required to create an A4 size detailed illustration of your proposed garment. This includes both front and back views, with all design elements, trims, and sourcing information thoroughly detailed.

Judging Criteria for Garment Illustration & Technical Drawing: The illustration will be evaluated based on the level of detail it provides, the inclusion of all required elements, and the feasibility of the design in practical terms.



Click here for Tips

Submit an A4 garment drawing of your design, front and back. Include all design details and trims used, and their sourcing methods.

Your fashion illustration is an artistic representation of your design concept, and it’s essential to showcase the details and aesthetics of your garment. Here are some key points you should consider:

  • ✔ Garment Detailing: Your illustration should clearly demonstrate the specific details of your garment. These may include seams, pleats, draping, gathers, stitches, and any unique design elements that your garment incorporates.
  • ✔ Front and Back Views: Illustrate both the front and back views of your design to provide a comprehensive understanding of the garment’s structure and silhouette.
  • ✔ Trims and Embellishments: If your design includes specific trims, buttons, zippers, embroideries, or other embellishments, make sure to include these in your drawing.
  • ✔ Proportions: The proportions of your drawing should be accurate to ensure a realistic representation of how the garment will look on the body. This includes the garment’s fit, length, and overall shape.
  • ✔ Fabric Representation: The way you shade, texture, and colour your illustration should give an idea of the fabric you’re planning to use. This might include indications of print, pattern, fabric weight (drape), and colour.
  • ✔ Colour: If you’re planning to use colour in your illustration, it should be consistent with the actual colours of the materials you intend to use. This can help visualize the final look of the garment.
  • ✔ Sustainable Aspects: Considering the theme of the competition, any sustainable features or aspects of your design should be apparent or noted in your illustration.
  • ✔ Technical Specifications: Alongside your illustration, it may be helpful to provide technical drawings or specifications, such as measurements and construction notes, especially if your design includes complex structures or details.


Remember, your fashion illustration is not just a drawing, but a communication tool to convey your design idea, creativity, and technical skills. Therefore, clarity, attention to detail, and artistic presentation are key.

Element 3

500-Word Motivation:

A motivation statement of no more than 500 words should accompany your design. This should articulate your understanding of designing for a slower future and how your design encapsulates this ethos.

Judging Criteria for 500-Word Motivation: Your motivation will be evaluated based on your understanding and interpretation of the theme, the connection drawn between the theme and your design, and your overall vision of a slower, sustainable future in fashion.



Click here for Tips

In your motivation statement, you’re expected to address how you’ve embraced the principles of sustainable design in your work. Your 500-word essay should address the following key points:

  • ✔ Understanding of the Brief: Explain how you interpret the competition’s theme, “Designing towards a Slower Future”, and show how you have incorporated the concept of borrowing, transforming, and returning materials into your design process.
  • ✔ Efficient Design to Minimise Waste: Discuss how you aim to minimise waste in your design process. This could include methods such as zero-waste pattern making, using sustainable materials, or integrating scrap or waste materials into your designs.
  • ✔ Mending and Repairing Techniques: Demonstrate your knowledge and use of methods for mending and repairing garments. This could include traditional techniques like darning, patching, or reweaving, or more innovative approaches that you have developed or adopted.
  • ✔ Exclusion of Denim: Confirm that you understand and comply with the rule that no denim is to be used in any part of the design. Explain how this constraint influences your choice of materials and the design process.
  • ✔ Designing for a Slower Future: Describe your vision for a slower, more sustainable future in fashion. This could involve discussing smaller production models, choosing quality over quantity, focusing on longevity, or other practices that align with this concept.
  • ✔ Sustainable Practices: Share your practices and strategies for sustainable design. You could discuss using sustainable materials, designing for longevity, or innovating in how you approach scale and production.
  • ✔ Design Philosophy: Discuss your broader design philosophy and how it aligns with sustainable fashion and the competition’s theme. Share your influences, inspirations, and the core values that drive your design decisions.
  • ✔ Personal Growth and Objectives: Reflect on how participation in this competition aligns with your career goals and personal growth. Highlight the skills, knowledge, or experiences you hope to gain.
  • ✔ Unique Selling Proposition (USP): Emphasize what sets you apart as a designer. This could be your unique approach to sustainable design, innovative techniques, or a signature aesthetic.
  • ✔ Passion and Commitment: Convey your passion for sustainable fashion and your commitment to a slower future in the industry.
  • ✔ Authenticity: Lastly, make sure your statement feels genuine and personal. It should clearly communicate your own perspectives, ideas, and aspirations as a designer.

Ensure that your statement is well-structured, engaging, and free of spelling and grammar errors. Remember, it’s an introduction to you and your design philosophy, and it’s a chance for you to make a strong impression.



Adhering to deadlines is crucial in this competition. All entries and design elements for this phase must be submitted between 21 July and 16 August. Remember, timely submission not only demonstrates your commitment but also allows ample time for your work to be evaluated fairly. Any entries received after the 16th of August will not be considered, so ensure you manage your time efficiently during this phase.

Deadline: 21 August 2023








Initiation of Final Garment Construction

As a semi-finalist, the exhilarating task of bringing your creative sketches to life awaits you. During this process, it’s crucial to faithfully adhere to your initial vision by continually referring back to your trend mood board and original sketches.



The final garment will be judged based on the following criteria:

  1. Interpretation of Brief: How well does the final garment interpret and respond to the design brief? This includes both the theme of “Designing for a Slower Future” and the specific guidelines within the brief.
  2. Design Innovation: The judges will be looking for originality and innovation in the design. This could include unique approaches to form, function, or both, which challenge typical fashion design norms.
  3. Sustainability: Given the theme of the competition, a key criterion is the sustainability of the design. This includes not only the materials used but also the processes, the garment’s longevity, and its potential for repair.
  4. Execution: The judges will consider the craftsmanship of the final garment. This includes the quality of construction, finishings, and detailing.
  5. Aesthetics: While subject to personal interpretation, the aesthetic appeal of the design will be judged. This includes the overall look and feel of the garment, as well as the balance between form and function.
  6. Adherence to Original Sketch and Design: The judges will consider how closely the final garment aligns with the original sketch in terms of design details and trims. This criterion examines your ability to realize your initial concept faithfully.

Remember, while each of these criteria is important, a successful design will balance all these elements to create a garment that is thoughtful, compelling, and reflects your unique perspective as a designer.


Delivery of Final Garment & Fittings 

In this stage, your completed garment should reach us. While we acknowledge the complexities of garment creation that might necessitate modifications, we expect your final piece to mirror your original sketches in terms of design details and trims as closely as possible. Deliver on the 24 September between 10am and 1pm, but no later than 9am on the 25 September to the CTICC 2 – please ask for Kathryn or Melissa. The fitment slot will be communicated closer to the time but will take place on the 25 September. 


Along with the final garment, the following items should be delivered:

  1. Styling Sheet: This should provide a complete look for the design with notes on hair, makeup, accessories, shoes, and the overall look and feel. The styling sheet is crucial for translating your vision to the runway. It should be highly detailed and specific to ensure a cohesive and expressive presentation.
  2. Written and Illustrated Communication: This should include any written descriptions or explanations and illustrations that have been updated since the initial submission. This will provide further insight into your design process and final result.
  3. Packaging: Consider the packaging of your final garment as part of your sustainable design approach. It should protect your garment during transit while also being environmentally friendly.

Remember, all the elements should align with the competition’s ethos of sustainability and “Designing for a Slower Future”. Good luck!
