Selfridges' Bright New Things 2015 - Closing Soon!

You perhaps wouldn’t put the words ‘Selfridges’ and ‘sustainability’ together in the same sentence, but recently the luxury department store chain has been making waves in the industry, firstly by banning the sale of plastic water bottles and replacing them with drinking fountains, and more recently in the 2015 edition of their Bright New Things competition, which aims to find and develop future change leaders in the industry.

WHAT IS THE COMPETITION ABOUT?
The historic department store, which first opened in London in 1909, has partnered with the Centre for Sustainable Fashion to offer its Bright New Things exposure in Selfridges windows, in store and online, as well as range of mentoring opportunities and support from the CSF and Selfridges’ own team of experts across buying, finance, legal and creative direction. There are no age restrictions, so if you’re an ethical fashion designer who has made sustainability an integral part of your business model, or maybe you have some bold, progressive ideas on how to affect change in the industry and make sustainability more desirable, then Selfridges wants to hear from you.

THE SMALL PRINT
Send an email to bright@selfridges.co.uk describing how you put sustainability at the heart of what you do, in no more than 500 words. You can also include images of your work or links to your website. Hurry, as the competition closes on the 28th August 2015, and successful candidates will be informed in September if they’ve made the cut.

Good luck!
