In determining the finalists, the judges were tasked with the responsibility of selecting three finalists for each category with the Innovative Design and Materials category receiving an additional finalist.

Commenting on the judges’ decisions is Twyg founder and director, Jackie May who had this to say:

“The judges’ decisions emphasize exciting direction in fashion such as the made-to-order manufacturing model, trans-seasonal clothing, the upcycling of plastic and textile waste, and increasing the use of handcraft and natural dyes. The attention to collaboration and the healing of our environment is inspiring.”
