Today Elsien Gringhuis won the first price (25.000 euro) during the Green Fashion Competition on behalf of the Dutch ministry. The second price (15.000 euro) went to OAT.

Eight finalists competed against each other in the finale of the Green Fashion Competition. They had to come up with a good business plan that was also eco-friendly.

Elsien won the first price, because as a young designer she managed to create a signature style in a very short period of time. She was also honored because she combines futuristic design with respect for the environment.

OAT, who sent half naked models down the runway, wearing nothing more than a pair of knickers, is known for it’s clean shoe designs made out of sustainable materials. The sneakers  of this brand do not only look good but are beneficial to the environment as well.

Congrats to you both!!
