“Our aim for 2016 is to offer financial support to exceptional students who want to develop their collection in a sustainable, vegan and transparent way. Honest by is the official sponsor of the FFDS scholarship.The FFDS is the first scholarship of its kind, offering students the opportunity to work in a progressive way. Recipients of the FFDS will receive a cash prize to develop their collection responsibly. The FFDS recipient will also receive guidance and mentoring from Honest by’s team, including Creative Director Bruno Pieters. Students from all over the world can apply at any moment during the year. The FFDS does not require that applicants were working in a sustainable way within their previous work. Students will first and foremost be chosen according to their design skills and technical innovations. Students from both garment and accessory programs can apply. The winners of the FFDS will work in a 100% transparent manner, use sustainable materials and create new and innovative alternatives for animal based materials.
