This just in: Ensembles is giving aspiring designers the chance to be part of their Spring 2013 Dresses collection via Wear My Design, a fashion design competition!
Applicants can submit any number of designs to the contest. A background in fashion design is not a requirement for the competition, just a love for Ensembles' style. Submit a dress prototype with an application form (you don't even have to sew the sample yourself; you can have somebody else do it for you—as long as it's your design, of course), and all approved submissions will be uploaded on the Ensembles Facebook page where people can vote for their favorites, which 10% of the criteria.
The winning designers will have their design produced by Ensembles for their Spring 2013 Dresses collection, which will be modeled by Ensembles endorser Carmina Villarroel. The winners' names will be credited as the garments' designer, of course. Five early birds whose submissions are approved will be rewarded with a P2,000 shopping spree from Ensembles!
Additionally, the winning designers will also receive cash prizes, gift certificates, and gifts from Ensembles' partners, including the following: a full makeover by Piandre Salon, coffee from Bo’s Coffee, and a huge gift pack from VMV Hypoallergenics. A writeup about the winners will also be featured on the Ensembles website, in national broadsheets, and other social media outlets.
