FTV Wants Young Designers!

Global fashion channel Fashiontv has announce the debut of their latest innovation - the FTV Online Designer Awards. Aimed at assisting emerging designers in Australia and New Zealand by launching them onto the international fashion scene, the competition is divided into three categories (swimwear/resort, evening/couture and lifestyle), and will be conducted entirely online.

The public will be able to rate the designers' work online, with category winners being chosen by a panel of industry stakeholders. The overall winner will feature in an internationally televised, fully produced clip, have a group place in a Perth Fashion Week runway show, a detailed write up and editorial in Australian Hair Journal, receive work experience at Metalicus, product package and exposure from Toni & Guy and a weekend at the Marriot Circular Quay, plus more.

The competition will run from April to July 4 2010.
