From cotton fields to clothing, from soil to ready-made garments, all parties work together to innovate cotton life and promote the traceability and sustainability of cotton raw materials and fabrics, design and production.

Interpretating cotton in a denim garment

At the event, Cotton USA demonstrated the natural properties and practicality of cotton based on the concept of environmental protection and sustainability, through cotton products presented by Garmon Chemicals and Cottonsmith in a cotton-themed space created with a new perspective. The contestants from the Donghua University brought design works that are agile, pure, elegant, and dynamic, expressing the multi-dimensional interpretation of cotton and its unique style. A group of heavyweight guests, senior judges, authoritative media, and clothing professionals shared a new trend in cotton life.

After intense competition, eight works were selected as they crossed barriers and broke with tradition. Garmon Chemicals awarded Jingtian Wang as the best student with the most promising design proposal in the fashion Contest, with a week of training in The Italian Job lab located in Italy. Cottonsmith chose the Best Commercial Potential Award product for further retail and “Mi” online sales.

“This wonderful event marks once again the high level of attention and commitment that Garmon expresses promoting and all-round sustainable approach,” said Donald Mulazzani, Marketing and Business Development Director of Garmon Chemicals. “Awarding a young Chinese designer that has been able to interpret this theme with a fresh and new perspective, represents a way to promote and stimulate talent with a global vision in mind, expanding our horizons outside Europe.”

Traceable, sustainable cotton life

Through cooperation and promotion, Cotton USA promotes the traceability and sustainability of US cotton throughout the entire supply chain from cultivation, spinning, weaving, to ready-to-wear, bringing about the safest, most comfortable and healthy experience.

“Cotton USA collaborated with Garmon Chemicals, Cottonsmith, and the College of Fashion and Design, Donghua University, focusing on the entire process of cotton from planting, fabrics, design, manufacturing, and washing process to finished garment. Cotton USA hopes to provide the students from the College of Fashion and Design (China’s future designers) with an opportunity to explore cotton creativity, participate in the business model platform and study future trends of cotton through this event,” commented Karin Malmstrom Director, China and Northeast Asia at Cotton USA.
