Our contest is open for application till the 14th of January, when a special jury will select the candidates for this new edition.
Interested people just need to write to firstname.lastname@example.org or go directly to the private group of Fb “Feel the Yarn – For New Designers” and search for the “Mandatory information for applying“.
The documents needed are:
- Portfolio of previous works with knitwear;
- CV outlining background in education and experience related to knitwear;
- Draft project for the 2 outfits based upon the theme of the competition which is “Feel the Green”; see for reference our website at: “Sustainability”. The project must include technical data such as: product category, yarns count, gauge/s, colours, third party certifications; see for reference Italian Yarns (any other information regarding yarns features and/or the working process to be used for the outfits will be welcomed).
Once the contestants will be selected, they will be asked to share moodboards and pictures about the work in progress of the projects upon the private FB group, where the world of spinning and knitwear usually gathers to follow Feel the Contest and exchanges comments and ideas: spinners, free-lance, fashion schools’ students, designers and yarn lovers.
