Fusion Specialties Inc. and DDI Announce Mannequin Design Competition for Students
October 25, 2012
Fusion Specialties Inc. has announced its first-ever Mannequin Design Competition for students. Design students are invited to participate in a contest exploring the world of mannequin design through the eyes of a singular brand. Winning designs will be showcased at 2013 GlobalShop in Chicago and in DDI magazine, among other venues. The grand-prize winner will see his or her designs sculpted and manufactured in full size; the winning collection will be displayed in the Fusion booth at GlobalShop 2013 and also highlighted at a jcpenney store in the New York City area. Cash awards will be provided to the top five designs.
In this competition, students will be challenged to explore how to meld the brand’s fit and look into a mannequin collection that is innovative, exciting and reflects the designated brand appropriately. Students will be designing for some of the most popular private-label brands sold at jcpenney, and will be required to understand the history, demographic and target customer for that brand. All of this must be reflected in the proposed design for the mannequins.
Participants must be actively enrolled in a collegiate-level design program and must be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico who are at least 18 years old at the time of entry. Participants must submit their full name, school, major, anticipated graduation date and email address. Once this criteria has been verified, a full brief will be emailed to qualified participants.
Students should submit initial interest and a request for detailed contest information to email@example.com no later than November 2, 2012. The creative brief will be sent to qualified participants by November 9, 2012.
