Are you currently completing a New Zealand fashion based tertiary course or have graduated from a New Zealand based tertiary course within the last four years? Fancy the chance to have your work shown on the catwalk at New Zealand Fashion Week, a $5000 business bank account with Westpac, 1 year mentorship and 1 year business banking advice from Westpac? Make sure you enter the Westpac Young Designer Competition by 1st August for your chance to win!
A panel of established fashion industry experts will select the ten most outstanding entries as semi-finalists. The top ten mini-collections will then be uploaded to the Westpac Young Fashion Designer Competition official Facebook page, where the public will be encouraged to vote online for their favourite young designer.
Westpac is looking for a winner with passion, vision and a strong aesthetic sense – a designer who is capable of creating inspiring and original clothes that have impact on the runway, without forsaking wearability.
The three young designers who amass the most public votes by Sunday 19 August will travel to Auckland to present their mini-collections in front of the judges during New Zealand Fashion Week. After a dramatic live runway walk-off at the Westpac RED COLLECTION show on Friday 7 September, the Westpac Young Fashion Designer Competition winner for 2012 will be announced.
