Calling All #Fashionistas: Art Institutes Passion for Fashion 2013 Competition

We all love fashion, one way or another. A certain look can define who were are, our style and can set you apart from others.

As a teenager I remember being in junior high and desperately wanting to start my own fashion line. It didn't work out, but for the most part I do remember always having some sort of idea on how I'd want my dresses to look and putting two different clothing items that didn't belong together and making them into an outfit. I guess somewhere between the Summer of going into ninth grade that dream kind of went away and I was on to another one.

Well for those of us with teens who are into fashion, dedicated and passionate about it, Art Institute's Passion for Fashion competition would be perfect for them. This gives them the opportunity to be named the winner of the Fashion competition and also earn a scholarship as well. Two national competition grand prize winners will each earn a half-tuition scholarship to attend an Art Institutes school, receive a VIP trip to New York City, participate in a “meet and greet” at Seventeen magazine’s New York City offices, have lunch with a Seventeen Style Pro, receive a $500 shopping spree at DKNY with the Style Pro, and a $500 gift card to shop anywhere in the Big Apple. How awesome is that?!?!

The Passion for Fashion competition consists of two separate categories: 

1) Fashion Design 
2) Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management. 

For the Fashion Design category, entrants submit three original sketches of an evening wear garment; and for the Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management category, entrants submit a fashion trend forecast board. Entrants must choose an Art Institutes school that they wish to represent in this competition, and later attend. Local competitions will take place at each participating Art Institutes school throughout U.S. and Canada.

Each local Fashion Design competition winner and each local Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management competition winner will earn a $3,000 tuition scholarship to The Art Institutes school they represent in the competition. Local first place winners in each category will move on to the national competition where the national grand prize winners will be chosen by a panel of fashion industry professionals.

  If you know any teens, girls or boys who are into Fashion, this is definitely the competition for them!
