DESIGN COMPETITION // FRONT ROW SOCIETY - PRECIOUS STONES


CREATIVE BRIEF

Submission Deadline: 15 January, 2015, 6pm CET
Voting Starts: 16 January, 2015, 6pm CET

We’re in festive mood here at Front Row Society, perhaps because our office Christmas party is just around the corner! But there’s just something about this time of year that fills the heart of every fashionista with a warm glow – what with all the get togethers and end of year celebrations, it truly becomes a glittering social season, full of party dresses in jewel bright colors, and eye catching statement jewellery with big beautiful gemstones. So for this month’s design challenge, it was only natural to take inspiration from this sparkliest of seasons for our theme: precious stones. 

We’re looking for designs that reflect the opulence and elegance of these gorgeous minerals: from the stunning striations and intricate details found in blocks of polished quartz, to the crystal clarity and clearness of finely cut gemstones. Think of a glittering cascade of jewel bright colored gems, set against a rich coppery background of burnished bronze; explore the alluring, almost liquid sheen and luster of pyrite, or go back to basics and uncover the rough yet beautiful textures of uncut jewels. From turquoise to amethyst, topaz to lapis lazuli, we can’t wait to see your impressions of precious stones. Because if there’s ever a perfect time to indulge in a little luxury, it’s at Christmas, right?

This competition is for scarves. As always, don’t forget that your print might need to be adjusted to fit the appropriate template. All templates are marked with design specifications to help you get your design just right. Please note that all Front Row Society templates may differ slightly from final manufacturing specifications, so make sure your print is versatile and flexible enough for production.

What can you win?

Each winner receives a one-off prize of 200€ once the collection launches on the website plus a sample of their products when it arrives in stock. But that is not all – if your design receives 500 orders on wholesale, you will receive an additional €200. This means that FRS can continue to embody the spirit of fashion democracy, rewarding our top designs again...and again...and again! We will also conduct an interview with the winner, publicizing their design across the fashion community in Berlin and worldwide.
