Be part of the London 2012 Festival with Grazia Magazine’s Hat Factor
Love hats? Want to be the new Philip Treacy or Stephen Jones? If so, you could win the chance to be part of London 2012 Festival, in celebration of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games – plus have your designs featured in Grazia Magazine.
On Friday 30 March at 9.30am our friends at Grazia are launching Hat Factor, a major fashion talent search to find the UK’s next big hat star. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to play a key role in the biggest festival the UK has ever seen.
To enter, you can be a fashion student, milliner, designer who’s just starting out – or you could just have a creative twinkle in your eye.
On the day of the Hat Factor, bring your designs to the offices of Grazia in London and show them before a judging panel of Grazia editors, the UK’s top milliners Philip Treacy and Stephen Jones, and industry experts. Tt’s all about demonstrating your own creativity, skill and imagination!
Just bring your entry along with you – this can be a finished hat that’s ready to wear, a prototype or simply an idea you have sketched on a piece of pape – but make sure it’s impactful, eye-catching and something you want to showcase on a global scale.
The winner will be asked to create their design. Details of how the design will be showcased is top secret right now (but what we will say is it’s going to be really special!), and will be revealed to the winner once they have been notified. So what are you waiting for?
