The Studio Project

This ‘Project Runway’ type competition gives designers the opportunity to win a number of prizes, including :

– A spread in our in-store magazine
– Professional styled photoshoot
– Window display within store
– Free rental within store to sell their designs

We will be running a series of these competitions with each one having a theme which will need to incorporated into each design brief. The theme for this one is LACE.

Designers will be given 2 Briefs, and must design and complete 4 pieces over the course of the 2 weeks, and will be judged on Design, Construction and Wearability.

Briefs will be given at the start of each week, designers will then have 2 days to source fabric and design their pieces. Construction / cutting / drafting then must take place within the Studio over the course of 2.5 days.
Our in-house sewing and design expert Cherie White will be on hand to advise and help designers in the construction process.

Designers will be allocated a model for the duration, which they must fit their designs to. Final designs will then be modelled, with hair and makeup etc, for judging.

The model who wins alongside the designers, will also be featured within our magazine.

Dee McQuillan, The Irish Times Fashion Editor will be one of our main judges in the final.

Curran Creatives Hair Salon will be on hand to help style model for final look along with our in-house MUA
