Hey Designers!!! Enter Playful Promises Student & Recent Graduates Design Project

Playful Promises

If you are a design student or recently graduated and love designing lingerie STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING! One of my favorite brands Playful Promises have launched a design competition where if you win you will see your designs created and sold through Playful Promises - this is really is an amazing opportunity. 

The previous competition was in 2013 and it's three winners (Carli Pullinger, Pippa Davidson and Eva Lai) went onto do some amazing things with Eva even launching her own brand! 

So here's the nitty gritty taken direct from Playful Promises so it's all correct...


We have launched a new design competition for a mini-collection in SS'16.

The 3 winners will see their design concepts taken through to final production and a photoshoot, with a limited release of 30 sets each.

Our competition is open for to all fashion undergraduates and recent graduates, with a deadline of the 13th of March 2015.

We will be creating a shortlist of 10 entries, which we feel best suit our brand, and encourage our fans to vote on facebook to help us select the final winners!

The year’s design competition takes its theme from Stylesight's SS'16 Trend Forecast – ‘Sartorial’. This trend is perfect for the Playful Promises customer with it's mix of grown up girl with dark detailing. Think pretty bondage, flowers and restraints,  delicate embroidered lace and harder textured wet look fabrics.
The winning collection will sit under the title ‘Future Pin-ups’ reflecting that this range features designs that have the feel of being contemporary classics. 
Feel free to use the Stylesight Trend Forecast (see shots below taken from Stylesight.com) as a starting point but also to let your own creative processes interpret the meaning of ‘Sartorial’.  We love print design and are able to digitally print any winning designs, so feel free to submit any print design as part of your entry. 

1) To see your designs go from concept to production and be available for sale.
2) A set of your winning design in your size 
3) A £200 voucher to spend on our site www.playfulpromises.com 
4) The opportunity to see your work and name with links to any portfolios promoted across our social media of which we have around 60k followers in total, as well as in a newsletter to our database. 
For any questions, and to send your entry, please feel free to email: emma@playfulpromises.com

For me as a Playful Promises customer I love this idea of buying something from an up and coming designer that will be sexy yet fashion forward. By the way this isn't a sponsored post I just wanted to promote what I think is an amazing chance for you young designers - if you are interested just give it ago! 
Also if you are reading this and think I know someone who should enter make sure to tell them as he deadline isn't too far away!

Are going going to enter? Good Luck :)
