Marc Jacobs, Alber Elbaz, Stella McCartney– they didn't become fashion glitteratti overnight. Now here's your opportunity to break into the fashion design scene and support a good cause: Rethink Fashion Targets Breast Cancer is hosting a National design contest, open to students of fashion & design programs across the country. Your mission? Redesign the iconic Fashion Targets Breast Cancer "Target" t-shirt. One caveat: the target logo must be incorporated in your design but can be reconstructed or deconstructed in any way to meet your vision.
Judges Amoryn Engel (National Post), Shinan Govani (National Post) and Deborah Fulsang (Chatelaine) will select the finalists and public votes will select the winner via the official Fashion Targets Brerast Cancer website (to be announced May 29).
Grand prize– a cool $1,500 bursary toward school or the production of your design. Get cracking this weekend– the deadline for submissions is Wednesday, April 29 at 5pm. rethinkbreastcancer.com
