Deadline to Enter ‘Discovered’ Fashion Design Competition Extended Until Monday June 14th

Yes, it’s time for celebration as we have some great news! The deadline for entering our Discovered Fashion Design Competition has been extended to 5pm, Monday June 14th giving entrants nearly three extra days to submit their entries!

Do you really want to pass up an opportunity to have YOUR collection broadcast on FashionTV? How about the $1,000 Discovered prize package that includes a professional photo shoot for your entry into the FashionTV Online Designer Awards? We didn’t think so and now that we have extended our entry deadline you have no excuse not to enter.

27 Names at the NZFW - Imagine if YOUR collection was broadcast on FTV?

New Zealand Fashion Designers – WE WANT YOU!
The competition is targeted toward new, emerging and student fashion designers – if you fit the bill don’t delay and get your entry in to us now.

Prizes Galore
The photography package includes a shoot with professional photographer Brett Stanley at Kingsize studio’s in Auckland and a whole heap of other goodies. Richard Kavanagh, one of New Zealand’s top hair stylists will work his magic on the models provided by Clyne Model Management and M.A.C cosmetic artist Vee Gulliver will head the make up department.

The images from the photo shoot will then be used to enter the Fashiontv Online Designer Awards and thanks to our friends at FTV Oceania our 3 winners will have their entry fee waived!

😦 But I don’t have a new collection to enter

We are asking for images (no need to send us garments) of three ensembles from a collection, a 300 word concept of your collection and a completed entry form – that’s it.

You can enter a previous collection or graduate collection that you have designed or a new one, it’s up to you. However we will only accept one entry per person.

I’m in! What other details do I need to know?
