the call

One call I’m not going to miss – the call for young fashion students/designers in Belgium to send in their portfolios for the first edition of the Fashion Academy Award. An initiative of the Goethe-Institute in Brussels, an attempt to build a network between fashion schools and support young upcoming designers sounds very promising indeed, as you get to see their list of prizes that are ranging from 25.000 euro to the Galeries Lafayette award. The brief directions that can be found on their website say that all competitors should submit an A4
(21x29,7 cm) portfolio with at least five original colour drawings and ten sketches of ten outfits for a 2008 collection. They should include a complete technical description, material and colour samples, a creative visual representation (photo) of a prototype (complete outfit) that has been designed for the collection, and a concept for the collection that explains the basic idea of the collection. Standard stuff, and they are asking for ten silhouettes to be sent to Rue Belliardstraat 58, 1040 Brussels.
