There is undeniably a new age of creativity and purpose in the fashion industry, with a call to action on sustainability. E D G E takes a step forward to look at fashion from an intelligent, artistic, and practical perspective. The website, EDGExpo.com, provides a magazine-style look at the paradigm shift from irresponsible, excessive production and consumption to one of environmental and ethical consciousness, cultural sensitivity, and storytelling.
E D G E, the acronym of Emerging Designers Get Exposed, gives a voice to emerging designers [all across the globe] who are exhibiting design excellence in artistry, cultural significance, and sustainability. The under-exposed and under-represented designers are putting a cultural face, purpose, and environmental conscious to fashion. They take a bold, non-traditional approach to the business and are transforming the industry.
While elevating this curated design talent, E D G E fosters a global network of fashion industry professionals, educators, and the arts, and connects through exposure, exhibition, editorial, and education.
