In a world where the future of fashion is unknown and ever changing, emerging designers are at the forefront of creatively reimagining the industry.

 

Breaking Silence: Design for a Changing World represents a diverse collective of 12 emerging designers producing inspiring collections that challenge the perception of what we wear and how it’s made. Collectively, these designs uniquely confront and reflect upon the systemic issues in the fashion industry, utilizing the power of design to meet the needs of a changing world.
