Yas Mall has just announced it will be inaugurating a competition, titled Design Your Way to the Runway, for aspiring regional fashion designers.
To enter, designers must submit six sketches or renderings for a clothing line, inspired by a “modern arabesque” theme. After a preliminary judging panel views the entries, a committee will contact shortlisted finalists, who will then need to produce the 6-10 outfits in their collections.
The winning designer will showcase his or her collection during Yas Mall Fashion Week, which takes place October 12-15, with the opportunity to stock at one of the mall’s concept stores. The winner will also have exposure in local fashion and lifestyle magazines.
Entries should be submitted online here before September 17.
