from1000 transparency prize

Fashion designer Bruno Pieters and American fashion journalist Kristopher Arden-Houser have joined forces to create the “From 1000 Transparency Prize”. The prize aims to promote the use of transparent – and, also, organic – materials and methods in the fashion industry and it has been co-created with Designers’ Nest, a platform that supports graduates from Scandinavian schools of design. Pieters and Arden-Houser will chose the winner at the end of 2013 among the participants in Designer’s Nest held on February and August. The winner will receive mentorship from the award founders and will have the chance to design a mini collection, which will be available on select Scandinavian stores and www.honestby.com, Pieters’ e-commerce channel.
