Once again it's time for the Bermuda High School for Girls' annual ecoRunway fashion show.  The idea behind the initiative is to foster responsible global citizens and the competition challenges those taking part to showcase creativity and sensitivity to the environment.  We were honoured to be one of the three judges in the inaugural competition held in 2012, and the competition has gone from strength to strength every year since.

The participants in the six-week competition are students in the senior school.  The students are divided into teams and are given the mandate of creating two designs each of which must contain at least 50% recycled materials.  Each team is paired with a mentor from the local fashion and design community who provides feedback, constructive criticism and guidance.  The completed designs are presented to the public during a runway show at which time the judges are asked to award points based on originality, wearability, creativity and presentation and the winning team walks away with the infamous Stiletto Award.

This year's ecoRunway fashion show takes place tomorrow, April 25.
