Only a few days left for Scotland’s emerging fashion and textile designers to enter the exciting NU BLVCK design competition. NU BLVCK, an innovative new Scottish based fashion e-commerce platform, disrupting the world of fashion, is currently staging an open call to engage Scotland’s design community through a competition with a winner’s prize of £2,000. NU BLVCK is gathering a community of designers and celebrated artisans from Scotland to join NU BLVCK in its quest to change the conventional model in fashion.
“…fast fashion has infiltrated the industry and as a result our wardrobes are saturated with mass manufactured, disposable clothes that give no consideration to original design, nor credit to the people who design or make them. NU BLVCK is redressing this with a completely transparent approach to design and manufacture and we’re creating beautiful limited edition fashion accessories. What’s even better is we’re doing it by celebrating the talent we have right here in Scotland.”
The competition will lead to the curation of NU BLVCK’s first collection of fashion accessories. The debut NU BLVCK Autumn / Winter ‘16 Collection will be unveiled at an exclusive event on 2nd August which will take place as part of Glasgow’s Merchant City Festival which presents some of the best of Scottish and international art, fashion and entertainment.
The evening will showcase the winning designs from the competition and guests will have the exclusive chance to get in early and pre-order products from the next big label to come out of Scotland.
The design competition is open to all designers based in Scotland, for more information see www.nublvck. com/competition
Competition closes 5pm, 26 May 2016.
