cool textile competition

Hi there, do you remember my post on Momiji dolls? I blogged it last Monday. Well, Fran by Momiji site saw the post and asked me if I could post something about a competition they be launched at the New Designers show at the Business Design Centre in Islington in July.
Momiji was called for entries from fashion and textile students & graduates as well as the global crafting community. They are setting them the challenge to create their own exquisite, fabric Momiji doll.
The dolls from the Couture Contest will take a new direction with the top entries forming an exhibition of one-off, hand-crafted dolls at super-cool Japanese art space, Royal/T in Los Angeles.
The competition will be judged by a panel of fashion and design experts including Pip McCormac of Sunday Times Style Magazine, Barbara Hulanicki, founder of iconic 60’s fashion boutique BIBA, Deputy Editor of Selvedge Magazine; Beth Smith as well as Japanese art collector and owner of Royal/T, Susan Hancock. It’s the perfect opportunity for budding fashion students to showcase their magic.
Get involved, visit couture for a full design brief and then switch on your sewing machine.
Spread that info and remember that the competition will ends on October the 30th, 2009.
