DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship Open for Entries

SGC Runway Alex JiangThe DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship has rolled around for 2009 and up for grabs is NZ$10,000 worth of international freight, as well as an export mentoring package and annual membership subscription from FINZ.

The scholarship was won last year by New Zealand design trio, Stolen Girlfriends Club who have said that winning the award enabled them to push thier expectations further and to take their brand to overseas markets.

In the current economic climate we applaud the businesses who deem the fashion industry a worthy investment and think it’s fantastic that DHL is offering another scholarship for 2009. With $10,000 in sponsored freight plus mentoring to support your move into overseas markets, it is a scholarship that we highly recommend designers who fit the crteria to enter in to.

The scholarship is open to New Zealand fashion designers who have been exporting for less than four years. Entrants are asked to complete an official application form and submit a design portfolio (or seasonal look-books) and a brief C.V by 5.00pm on Friday, 30 October, 2009.
