Supima is hosting another design contest, asking emerging talent to "rethink the possibilities of fashion--beginning with fibers and fabrics". Modeled on the legendary 1954 Wool Secretariat competition that helped launch the careers of Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld, this event is just now picking up steam and setting its sights on becoming an important competition on the fashion calendar. Among other contestants in last season's runway show were the designers of Form (Jerry Tam and company)--who hold their own during New York Fashion Week with or without contest-running. The Supima open call will take place this Thursday in New York and the subsequent runway show will take place in January. For more information, click here.
