In celebration of the second annual The Philadelphia Collection– which is a 10-day citywide series of fashion and style events that will take place in September – a contest asking local fashion and graphic designers to create a design for a men’s and a women’s T-shirt, using The Philadelphia Collection logo has been kicked off. The winning design will be featured and sold at various retailers in Philadelphia such as (like South Moon Under, Knit Wit, Kimberly Boutique and more!). The only thing is the contest ends July 8, 2011.
The design contest marks the first of many events that The Philadelphia Collection 2011 will showcase in its mission to engage members of Philadelphia’s diverse fashion and style community. The winner will receive (in addition to bragging rights) brand/name exposure on the hangtag, exposure in select retail shops throughout the city, six complimentary t-shirts of their design, tickets to an event for The Philadelphia Collection 2011, and $150.
Nigel Richards of The 611 Lifestyle will produce the shirts locally in Philadelphia after the winner is selected on July 19th. The shirts will be sold for $30 at select retailers beginning September 1, 2011.
