AATCC announces second annual fashion for all Student Design Competition
Students are invited to showcase their design talents to win cash and recognition by participating in the 2nd annual AATCC and Runway of Dreams Foundation Fashion For All Student Design Competition.
The 2018 competition will challenge students to design a clothing or accessory item that reimagines fashion and function for people who are seated/wheelchair users. This new item should enhance the everyday existence of the wearer and/or their caregiver.
Complete guidelines for the contest are available online.
Runway of Dreams Foundation will award the first-place winner a minimum of US$5,000 scholarship to the first-place winner. The award will be given at the 3rd Annual Runway of Dreams Foundation Gala and Fashion Show in NYC in June 2018. The winner will have the opportunity to showcase their design before the top leaders in the fashion industry. Runway of Dreams Foundation will make travel and overnight hotel accommodations for the winner up to USD 1000. Should the winner of the competition be an international student, this stipend will be adjusted accordingly.
Runway of Dreams Foundation will award a USD 1000 scholarship to both the 2nd and 3rd place winners.
