express your style design competition

Posted in events by verbalcroquis on December 19, 2006

Bacardi and Fashion Week Daily have teamed up together to sponsor a design competition for all fashion designers over the age of 25.

Check out the info here.

Basic info:

The contest calls for entrants, aged 25 and over, to send sketches of fashions for men or women, in yellow tones, of course, that convey the excitement and intensity of a fabulous night out on the town. A description of the creative concept, in 500 words or less, must accompany the design, including the types of fabrics required. Contestants can enter as many times as they wish, but each entry must be different. Sketches may be sent either by mail or via email as a jpeg attachment sized between 600×900 and 1200×1800 pixels. All entries must be received by 11:59 EST on January 27, 2007.

Five finalists will be chosen by a panel of four illustrious judges, which will include top fashion designers, fashion editors and/or industry leaders and influencers. The winners will be flown to New York for the live “Cut and Sew” component of the contest where they will bring their sketches to life and present them to the judges. One grand prize winner will receive $5000 in cash, a two-week internship with a fashion designer or fashion magazine and the opportunity for their design to be featured in BACARDI LIMON’s advertorial, scheduled to run in the prestigious Daily Mini. The winner will also receive a portfolio review and interview with 24Seven, one of the nation’s largest fashion resources.

Leslie Snyder, who is in charge of PR for this competition sent me an email with more information, so if you’re interested in entering, email me at verbalcroquis at gmail dot com and I’ll forward you her email.

(FYI, I will not be entering. I’m currently overwhelmed with other concerns.)
