Simon Mills, head of sustainable development at the City of London Corporation, said: “We were inspired to create his category by the entire sot last years’ awards, the fabulous Thrifty Couture, who are a fantastic example of fashion driving local sustainable economic growth. “

The 2013 awards will be hosted in partnership with ethical and sustainable fashion icon Livia Firth, the wife of actor Colin Firth, and her Green Carpet Challenge. She will also present the awards show at the Lord Mayor’s residence on March 19.

The Sustainable City Awards, now in its 12th year, reflexts the scope of the City of London Corporation from financial markets to the arts, and aims to encourage jobs and growth.

The corporation works with 20 partners across the its categories to judge and select the winners and runners up.

Designers and retailers interested in applying should go to and the closing date for entries is December.
