What happens to hotel bed sheets at the end of their use?
How do we transform something old into something new and beautiful?
EFW has partnered with LaSalle College Vancouver and the Fairmont Waterfront to create the Chic Sheets Bed Linen Challenge. In this challenge eight students from the college will be given 4 recycled sheets from the Fairmont Waterfront and 3 weeks to transform these sheets into a runway ready look using only the sheets and Tintex dyes.
This year, in honour of Canada’s 150th Anniversary, the inspiration for the designer’s creations and theme to the whole collection will be “What does Canada mean to you?”
The whole collection will be presented on opening night, March 31st. The participants’ creations will have the chance to win a jury vote and a prize presented by OEKO-TEX or the public vote with a prize presented by the Fairmont Waterfront.
