The Quest for the Best New Young Designer
Announcing the opening of applications for the Young Designers Competition
As the Philippines’ best fashion magazine, MEGA has consistently kept a sharp eye for young talents who can continue to bring innovative designs to the fashion scene. Generation MEGA’s Young Designers Competition (YDC) provides aspiring designers not just a break in the industry, but the opportunity to highlight their esthetic for the public to see. The competition has paved the way for Rajo Laurel, Oj Hofer, Furne One, Patrice Ramos-Diaz, Aries Lagat, Mich Dulce, Ivarluski Aseron, Veejay Floresca, and Vanessa Ang among others to establish their names in the fashion industry. During the first ever telecast of YDC, Russell Villafuerte was crowned as the first grand prize winner.
MEGA once again opens its doors for the 10th edition of YDC. A screening will be held to serve as a venue for aspiring designers to showcase their creations. Participants must convince the esteemed panel of judges that they are worthy to be featured on the pages of MEGA. This is the second time that participants will be given a once in a lifetime chance to showcase their fashion flair on television. The story of their determination will transpire in front of millions of viewers, anxious to meet the newest additions in the fashion industry.
Interested applicants may download the form at the MEGA website - www.megastyle.ph. Deadline for confirmation is on October 10, 2011. Designers must submit a 500 word essay about who they are, and present two works (one formal and one casual wear) during the callout.
Watch out as past YDC finalists and winners share their thoughts and experience through a video callout on the MEGA Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/megamagazine.
