Call for entries! – Enter our Designer for Tomorrow 2012 competition and let Marc Jacobs be your patron!

We’re entering the next round of our young talent award and Marc Jacobs will be on board again!

For the first time, the fashion talent award ‘Designer for Tomorrow by Peek & Cloppenburg Duesseldorf’ is seeking design talent throughout Europe!

Young designers who have completed their studies within the last two years or who have training in the area of fashion design but who do not yet have their own collection on the market may apply. Together with a renowned expert jury, Marc Jacobs will nominate the five finalists who will have the opportunity to present their collection items during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in July 2012. The New York designer will travel to Berlin several times to support the young talents and help them develop their first major collection.

Winning the „Designer for Tomorrow” Award offers the young fashion creative an individual support program (including studio, production of the collection, sponsorship acquisition, etc.), an own fashion show within the framework of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in January 2013 and personal mentoring by the patron, Marc Jacobs.

What a more inspiring tutor could a young designer ask for?!
