Today marks the launch of the Orange Label Project – a collaboration between LCF and the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund). The project marks their 20th anniversary, and engages the issue of violence against women with new audiences, particularly young people, through a series of creative activities.
Working with students from LCC the project’s identity was born, and in October we launched a competition open to fashion students around the globe and across disciplines, to produce a piece of work incorporating the project colour, orange.
There were hundreds of applications from students across the world, who entered their work into one of six categories: beauty, fashion design, film, journalism, illustration and photography. Today we are happy to announce the competition winners and runners up in each category.

Congratulations to the winners who each receive a prize of £500, and thank you to everyone who entered and supported this worthy cause.
Today, we are encouraging the fashion industry to show their support too, by uploading an image featuring the colour orange to social media using the hashtag #OrangeLabelProject. Last year the campaign even turned the White House orange!. Please join us in uploading an image to your social media accounts on 25th, and wear something orange to work that day.
- Remember, this is a positive image to convey the message ‘Fashion Says No to Violence Against Women’ and it must use the colour orange!
