CFDA opens applications for the DHL Logistics in Fashion Award
The Council of Fashion Designers of America launched this month the application for the 2022 DHL Logistics in Fashion Award.
The DHL Logistics in Fashion Award, created as part of the CFDA and DHL partnership, aims to recognize emerging talent looking for support in expanding their business globally.
For the third edition, the award will be given to one American fashion brand who has embraced a sustainable and ethical approach to their business.
The winner will receive a $15,000 prize as part of the award program and will be announced in late summer. The winner will join past recipients of the DHL Logistics in Fashion Award including Lemlem, Brandon Maxwell, Area and Cesta Collective.
Eligible applicants must be a fashion design business; be located within the United States; be at least one year in business but no more than five years in business; and must have recent editorial support and retail distribution. Additionally, the application will frame questions that speak to environment, people and community.
Earlier this month, the courier service teamed up with Munich-based ethical-sustainable label Mykke Hofmann to launch a fashion collection called ‘Forever Pieces’. The collection was created via a design competition which DHL and Mykke Hofmann staged last fall on social media.
