Deadline for applications – 6 July 2014
What the YCE award is looking for?
We’re looking for people running great fashion and design businesses, who know that the ability to manage production and get product to market is just as important as fantastic design skills. We are looking for people who are using interesting materials, resources and business models to develop amazing products or to get other people’s products to the marketplace; people who are engaging with cultural and social issues and people who understand the power of collaboration. This is not an opportunity for designers – we are looking for people who are running fashion and design led business.
Programme for the winner
The winner will participate in a shared tour of the UK’s fashion and design sector. The programme allows the winners to gain unique access to and insights into the UK industry, as well as providing a fantastic opportunity to make a wide range of business contacts that will act as a springboard for future business/collaborations between the UK and internationally. The tour will run from 13 – 20 September 2014 while London plays host to London Fashion week and London Design week.
