I have a good mind to nominate my colleague and friend, Andrea Giusti of Project Selva. Her work with sustainable design has such a promising road ahead – her Up-Cycled Denim Kimono Jackets are really very cool!
I learned of the awards through Paulo Mance, founder, who believes passionately in the transition to sustainably produced fashion.
