Challenge the Fabric (CTF) has announced the finalists of the CTF Award 2024. The annual competition promotes and encourages using bio-based and recycled materials while establishing long-term partnerships between emerging designers and potential sustainable materials partners. 

Nine designers will be challenged to create one look using 10 metres of man-made cellulosic fibres (MMCF) fabric provided by sustainable materials partners. The looks will be showcased at an exhibition in Milan on May 14 and 15 and judged on creativity and innovation in working with MMCF fabric. The winner will be announced during the event and awarded a $10,000 cash prize. 

That sounds pretty good, right? Well, it gets even better. The exhibition will be launched at a cocktail party at Centro Congressi Fondazione Cariplo in Milan, where guests can see the designs in person and interact with the creatives, partners, and stakeholders of the MMCF supply chain.
