Create a brand new school uniform for the future and submit your design to a leading luxury fashion house for the chance to win some fantastic prizes. 

Challenge details

Imagine the year is 2119, the students attending your school arrive in driverless cars, most lessons are taught by artificial intelligence robots and the UK has just experienced its hottest summer for the tenth year in a row! Climate change means more extreme weather conditions, heavy snowfall, stormy weather and flooding are now a regular occurrence (snowfall is now so common, schools regularly take part in annual snowman building competitions)!

Your school has decided to rethink the design of their school uniform and want students to wear clothing that will better prepare them for extreme weather conditions. They also want the new uniform to have an impact on the environment by using sustainable and eco-friendly materials.

Your challenge is to create a brand new school uniform that's adaptable to dramatic changes in the weather, has a low carbon footprint and is stylish and fun!

When developing your idea, please answer the following questions:

  • What items will be included in your uniform? (Remember to cover all seasons and don’t forget about PE!)
  • What material(s) you'll use to make it?
  • How your uniform will have less of an impact on the environment?
  • Why will students enjoy wearing your uniform design?
  • What makes your design unique?
  • What is the name of your design? (Make sure it's original!)

How To Enter

You can send us your submission in whatever format you like (for example, as a word document, PowerPoint presentation or even a short video) and feel free to include as many drawings and pictures as you like.

 Be bold and think about the future of fashion. Good luck!
