Circular Fashion Games Reward Sustainability, Circular Economy Ideas

The first edition of the Circular Fashion Games wrapped up last month in the Netherlands, but international expansion is already planned.

A field of 76 contenders from an array of countries was whittled to three, with this year’s top prize going to Lenzing for an online tool that will provide free access to information about circular use of the company’s fibers in apparel design. Design is evaluated and scored based on a recyclability scale to determine whether a garment qualifies for the Lenzing Take-Back program. The concept’s creators — Sabine Silaraja, Jasper Roosendaal, Melissa Ortuno de León and Marijn Pronker — will now be part of an accelerator program to build a platform to allow users to make the right design choices.

Made possible through the lead sponsor C&A Foundation, and the business developer Veerle Luiting, the Circular Fashion Games are designed to encourage circular design thinking and circular business modeling. Not restricted to fashion students and designers, the event welcomes creatives from different disciplines. The multidisciplinary teams competed in boot camps at the SingularityU Netherlands in Eindhoven and another one organized by Fashion for Good and Impact Hub Amsterdam.

Start Up Mix chief executive officer Johnny Kerkhof, who is helping to guide the winners through an accelerator program, said, “This is pretty much my alternative to how the universities should function — more skill-based, more creativity-oriented, more real world learning opportunities. Participants never fail to amaze with what they come up with if you give them space and time to apply their talent.”
