Clothes Show Live searches for new design talentThursday, 30 August 2012
The competition is open to any emerging graduate designer who has completed their course between May 2009 and September 2010, and the opportunity could kick start their labels. The ten graduates will not only sell their collections at the show in December, but the successful labels will be given the opportunity to sell their collections online in their own boutique through the ASOS Marketplace from January 2013.
Maryam Hamizadeh, Show Producer for Clothes Show Live, said: “We are really excited about launching the Graduate ASOS Marketplace this year. It’s such an amazing chance for any young designers looking for a way to raise their profile.
“To not only be able to showcase and sell their collection at Clothes Show Live, but to also be able to go on and sell online through ASOS is money can’t buy opportunity. I can’t wait to see who the final 10 designers will be.”
Katie Oldham, ASOS Marketplace Senior manager, added: “ASOS Marketplace is delighted to be working with the Clothes Show to find recent graduates and provide them the platform to sell their collection at the Clothes Show and on ASOS Marketplace. This is an incredible opportunity and is firmly in the ASOS Marketplace ethos of supporting new fashion businesses”
