Design Forward is an event held by Fashion Takes Action each year to showcase the work of sustainable fashion designers and offers them a platform to share their collections with the public.
Fashion Takes Action collaborated with students from the Bachelor of Industrial Design program of School of Applied Technology, Humber College, to design a trophy for this year's winner.



The inspiration images that the client had given us was a helpful way of understanding where to start within the design process, but more research was critical in understanding how a similar design language could be translated into different forms. Therefore, form exploration, material research, and aesthetic language where initiated.  

concept generation

Based off of the design brief and our inspiration images gathered as a team, concept sketches were developed of possible options for the client.

concept(s) selection

After proposing the the initial concept ideations to the client - 3 concepts were chosen. Concept refinements and challenges for each were defined involving materials selection for form, production limitations and solutions, and sourcing. This was done as a team.
