So last October I went to Montreal to be a judge for the Emerging Fashion Designer Award put on by POP Montreal. The winner was the very talented and very deserving Dane Gerus (outfit from his collection pictured above). This year, WORN decided that its readers would love to see what the winner cooked up, so we are sponsoring the awards! There is still time to get in on this year’s action; call for participants is below. Good luck!
“Puces Pop is looking for a fresh crop of design talent for the 2009 Puces Pop Launch Party and Emerging Fashion Designer Award. Sponsored by Le Chateau, 6 Quebec designers on the rise will present a 6 look mini-collection to a panel of judges from the industry. The winner receives a $1000 prize, a $500 gift certificate from Le Chateau and a spread in Worn Fashion Journal. Interested in participating? Email a short bio or description of your collection and a minimum of 2 photos of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org before August 20th.”
