To enter the Fashion and Textiles category you must submit:
- Photographs of a completed outfit, garment, or accessory you have designed and made, (this can include shoes, hats, bags, jewellery, or other fashion accessories).
- Evidence of the process you took from your initial inspiration or concept, through idea generation and refinement of those ideas, to your final design.
Your entry must include one ideas board and up to two design boards. Boards must be a maximum size of A2 and entrants are encouraged to submit examples of the type of materials and fabrics used for their design although this not compulsory. You can submit electronic images of your board, or physical entries.
If shortlisted, we may ask you submit your actual piece of work for inclusion in our exhibition. The online entry form must be completed and physical entries must be delivered to Loxley House, Station Street, NG2 3NG by 12noon on April 1st. (Monday – Friday between 9am and 5pm) the entrant must notify the YCA in advance that they are delivering the entries to Loxley House.
You also need to submit a short description of your work and what inspired you to create it, as this will also be considered as part of the judging process.
