While some designers work many, many years for recognition as the best in their field, others are just so ahead of the game that the gates to the shiny catwalks of NY beckon at precisely the right time.
We’ve been working with our client, Nicole Bridger since pretty much the inception of her line in 2007 and to say that she has solidified herself as a leader in the sustainable fashion field in Canada is an understatement. From the tv screen to the pages of North America’s hottest fashion glossy’s, the pr initiatives achieved have really helped catapult Nicole to the best of the best in the Eco Fashion scene and the news about her nomination and win for the first ever Canadian Eco Fashion Award is a well deserved victory for her and the environmental movement.
After being hand selected out of 40 designers, 14 nominees and 3 finalists we thrilled to announce that Nicole Bridger has been named the Canadian Designer of the Year by Fashion Takes Action, receiving the FTA’s inaugural Design Forward Award! The FTA created the Design Forward Award to recognize designers in Canada who have gone above and beyond in “eco-initiatives” to become more sustainable. Nicole will be travelling to NYC in September 2010 to participate in the Nolcha Fashion Week’s Ethical Fashion Preview. Congratulations to our client, Nicole Bridger!!!
