The finalists will participate in a 17-month residency program starting next month, which will include field visits, workshops and mentorship. The brands will learn more about the social, environmental and financial challenges of working in the fashion industry, with a focus on problem-solving.

Three participants who have shown the greatest evolution throughout the residency will win $150,000, with two runner-ups receiving $50,000 each.
