Risq, in cooperation with Go Negosyo and GMA 7 is in search of the best student designers in the Philippines from fashion schools such as Fashion Institute of the Philippines, School of Fashion and the Arts, Style Studio Fashion and Design School Philippines, and University of the Philippines. This is the brainchild of Ms. Kristine Soguilon of Indios Bravos Multimedia and Ms. Cristina Tanseco - Guerrero, who is a a 2010 Go Negosyo Inspiring Young Filipino Entrepreneur awardee and founder of Ideal Events International.
Contestants will design an 11-set wardrobe collection for both men and women suitable for the summer holiday, flexible enough to wear it morning till evening, from the sands to the water. The culmination of the activity will be the highlight as all the contestants will partake in a grand fashion show / awarding ceremony will be on March 4 at the World Trade Center to be directed by Mr. Floy Quintos and hosted by Joey Mead with international press, celebrities, fashion buyers, and bloggers alike to attend the event.
I'm surprised what's in store for the winning designer: Php 150,000 cash prize, gift certificates, fashion business start-up kit, feature in a broadsheet and fashion magazine, and a chance to showcase the collection in a shopping establishment!
