Introducing the Wearables Fashion Faceoff Contest
This year, Wearables is partnering with Vantage Apparel (asi/93390) and Moore College of Art & Designin Philadelphia for a fun, fashion-forward contest to help teach the next generation of designers about embroidery and screen printing.
Juniors in Moore’s fashion program have spent the year designing and constructing a male and female athleisure look that will walk down the runway at the school’s annual fashion show in May. Six of those juniors took on Wearables’ Fashion Faceoff challenge: They’ll be creating an original embellishment for a Vantage garment to complement one of their athleisure looks.
We’ll be following along with the contestants throughout the process – from initial sketches to the final runway-ready look. Contestants will share their thoughts and design aesthetic in short videos, podcasts, sketches and photos. At the end, our judges will evaluate the students’ athleisure looks and Vantage-produced add-on, scoring each based on marketability, technical craftsmanship and overall artistic appeal. The first-prize winner will receive $250, and second and third place will receive $100 each.
