MyItThings.com has announced the launch of the “It” Designer Contest, the ultimate opportunity for aspiring designers. The judging panel includes a team of fashion industry experts, Project Runway alum Malan Breton, former Editor-in-Chief of Life & Style Sheryl Berk, C Magazine Executive Editor Nathan Cooper, Designer Keith Lissner and MyItThings Editor-in-Chief and Co-Founder Yuli Ziv.
Now through July 15th designers can submit five previously created looks and readers will be able to vote for their top ten favorite designers. The three finalists will be awarded $1,500 to work on their looks for a Spring 2009 collection.
This effort will be documented on the MyItThings.com social platform through blogs, videos and pictures so that fans can keep up with their favorite designers efforts. A runway show will be conducted in October in NYC, which will allow the three finalists to show off their work in a professional runway show.
The final winner will be chosen by a combined vote of 50% by the judges and 50% by the MyItThings.com community. A $5,000 Grand Prize, as well as exclusive collection sale on MyItThings.com will be awarded to the winner.
Good luck to those that has/will enter the contest! Enter now at MyItThings.com.
