January 20, 2012
CALL FOR ENTRY: Apply Before FEBRUARY 10, 2012!
For the Toronto Fashion Incubator’s (TFI) 25th anniversary, Barbie® is challenging Canadian designers to play with fashion for a chance to win $10,000. Designers are welcome to take their brands signature style to new heights using Barbie®, the ultimate fashion icon, as inspiration! TFI is looking for “art-to-wear” pieces that are THEATRICAL, FRESH, OPTMISTIC, OUT-OF-THE-BOX!
The one-of-a-kind design should translate to a wearable piece that can be worn down the runway and designed to fit a female model. 25 designers will be selected to have their pieces showcased at TFI’s 25th anniversary gala runway show on May 3, 2012. One winner from the 25 designers selected will win a $10,000 cash prize!
Come play in Barbie’s world!
She may be just under a foot tall, but Barbie® doll is big in the fashion world. She has served as model and muse to many of the world’s most renowned names in fashion. Always ahead of the trends, Barbie® has inspired many designers to identify and play out their dreams, serving as the ultimate canvas for their imaginations.
