Target Canada will be here before you know it, and to help drive home their impending arrival (NOT SOON ENOUGH), they’re teaming up with Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI) for the TFI New Labels Design Competition.
The competition supports up-and-coming Canadian designers, and this year, the winner will win $25 000 from TFI supporter Suzanne Rogers, as well as the opportunity to create an exclusive collection to be sold in Target Canada stores in 2014. Exciting!
“We are always looking for ways to elevate the competition, and we are thrilled to have Target on board to support New Labels this year,” said Susan Langdon, executive director of TFI. “With a guaranteed in-store collection on the line, the stakes are even higher for our young designers. Target is known for their exclusive designer partnerships, and we are so pleased to be able to be able to give one of our own such an amazing opportunity.”
That, and the winner will ALSO receive a full-page editorial feature in Flare magazine, so this isn’t amateur hour, that’s for sure. Good luck to the participants!
