THE RISING FINALISTS!!! #RisingStar2013

elle-rising-star-design-award-2013

Last week, ELLE Magazine SA announced the top 8 finalists for this year’s ELLE RISING STAR DESIGN AWARD in association with Mr Price and everyone is hella excited (more like super amped, really) to witness the rise of fashion’s freshest talent assuming a rightful position. After being judged on their successful story and mood-board presentations, this lot has already began working on producing real garments. One of the rad judges has confirmed that the finalists should have these garments ready by September, with one complete and ready to be photographed for an up-coming issue editorial, the immediate day after a second round of judging –yeah, slotting right in the fast-paced bit of it whilst bringing their two dimensional storyboards to life. In October the panel will also be looking for a reader judge to join in and for the final announcement of the winner in November at an event held in Cape Town. In know you have seen images of these lucky finalists, their presentations and Twitter handles floating about industry latitudes by now (I am a full participant of guess-the-ultimate-winner too *winks), but I thought you might be keen to know here they went to school and a grand total of three key points I think best describes their different design approaches for this competition. ENJOY!!!
