Get your designs skills ready for a chance to be a part of The Philadelphia Collection -- a collective of fashion and style events taking over Philly for 10 days in September.
The contest asks local fashion and graphic designers to create a design for a men’s and a women’s T-shirt, using The Philadelphia Collection logo, which will be sold at various retailers in Philadelphia. The contest runs through July 8, 2011.
The winner will receive (in addition to bragging rights) brand/name exposure on the hangtag, exposure in select retail shops throughout the city, six complimentary t-shirts of their design, tickets to an event for The Philadelphia Collection 2011, and $150.
Nigel Richards of The 611 Lifestyle will produce the shirts locally in Philadelphia after the winner is selected on July 19th. The shirts will be sold for $30 at select retailers beginning September 1, 2011.
