ELLE and Mr Price have joined forces again and the search is on for the 2014 ELLE Rising Star.
The competition is open to all aspiring young designers and offers the winner a springboard for launching a career in fashion. This year the search is not just countrywide, though – it’s continent-wide as ELLE and Mr Price are casting their fashion net wider and have opened up the competition to young designers across Africa.
The 2014 ELLE Rising Star Design Award in association with Mr Price is presented by African Fashion International (AFI) and the search will culminate at the prestigious Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2014 where the finalists will show their designs and the winner will be announced.
Entries opened on 14 July 2014 and the entry form and all the details can be downloaded from www.elle.co.za.
“My advice to this year’s entrants is to stay true to who you are as a designer, push your level of creativity and be brave. The only limit is how keen you are to win.” – Nicholas Coutts, winner of the 2013 ELLE Rising Star Design Award
