Call for Applications: The International Young Design and Fashion Entrepreneur Award
The International Young Design and Fashion Entrepreneur (IYDFE) award finds the brightest stars in the world of international design and fashion, recognizing the importance of entrepreneurs in industry development, championing their independent sector and representing the best of what’s going on in their local scene.
If you are an entrepreneur based in the UAE, between 21 and 40 years of age, showing entrepreneurial qualities in driving the local fashion and design sector forward, then this is the perfect platform to go international.
In September 2012, the winner from UAE will join the national YCE Design and Fashion winners to the UK for a one week industry programme to develop opportunities for commercial and collaborative work in future. The UK tour will run alongside London Fashion Week and London Design Festival in September 2012.
