FINAL CALL FOR ENTRIES
Fashion Fringe Accessories 2011
28th February 2011, London – This week is the final week for submission of entries for the Fashion Fringe 2011 Accessories platform, chaired by Bruno Frisoni, Creative Director of Roger Vivier, legendary French shoe company famed for elegance and glamour.
There are only five days left to submit entries to the competition which closes on the 4th of March. No formal training is needed to be eligible to take part in the accessories platform, as the initiative aims to find and support new accessories design talent with a once in a lifetime opportunity of an apprenticeship at Roger Vivier. The apprenticeship has been designed to provide the winner with intensive exposure to all aspects of the luxury accessory business from design and development, to dealing with the press and wholesale account management.
Bruno Frisoni, said:
‘I was lucky to be able to follow my dream. Therefore for me it is a privilege to play but a small part to encourage our next generation of young designers to create their own visions – to set out on their adventures with confidence and conviction and with the support of Fashion Fringe Accessories these may become a unique reality.’ Bruno Frisoni
Colin McDowell said “This is an incredible opportunity for young talent to gain invaluable experience working for one of the best shoe designers in the world. Roger Vivier is the ultimate name in luxury and learning your trade with them will set you in good stead for the rest of your career. This is a golden opportunity for any young designer out there.”
Candidates can apply through the Fashion Fringe website (www.fashionfringe.co.uk) where 5 finalists will then be shortlisted to present their application to Bruno Frisoni and his judging panel.
