DESIGN COMPETITION // FRONT ROW SOCIETY 0 NAIVE TRIBALISM


CREATIVE BRIEF

Submission Deadline: 15 December, 2014, 6pm CET
Voting Starts: 16 December, 2014, 6pm CET

It’s that time of year again: the Berlin skies have turned a stubborn gray, a chilly wind has started to blow unceasingly, and the beautiful colors of fall are starting to give way to the monochromatic coldness of winter. So let’s leave the real world behind and venture forth on another one of our exciting explorations, shall we?

Yes for this month’s “Naive Tribalism” challenge we’re asking you to explore the striking patterns and sumptuous colors of tribal artworks. Think crudely drawn markings and simple patterns, rough etchings of tropical flowers and wildlife, and the lush swampy colors of the heart of the jungle.

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 immediate prize of 200€ . plus one of their products when it arrives in stock. But that is not all - each & every time we sell 500 pieces of your design, 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.

Go here to learn more and to submit your designs.

Here is a preview of FASHION SNOOPS',  S/S 2016 ACTIVEWEAR.  To order a copy of the report, go here.

    VERTIGO    

We kick off the Spring 2016 forecasts with Vertigo, dizzying visuals and good vibes in a delirious mashup, topped off with a sweet and sassy attitude. Retro shapes inspired by 60s kitsch swimwear get modernized by mixed media materials, while playful, overtly flirty details get slapped with snarky message graphics.



Seaside inspiration comes from beach bunnies galore. With cheeky and nostalgic surf style shapes like foamy high-waisted bottoms and flirty bras dominating key items and hazy cotton candy hues clashing with poppy watermelon and cherry red.

GRAPHICS 
1. Bad gals 2. Airbrushing 3. Nostalgic neon 4. Sweet and Sassy 5. Apathy 6-7. Tattooed and Tweaked Icons

    MUD    

MUD is movement under distress. For our third active forecast this season, we focus on the primal state of stability within extreme conditions deriving from baja racing, beach volleyball and mudder races. A fusion of dry environments and sweat.


Dirt and mud terrains of mining camps, outdoors trails, mudder obstacles, canyons and ancient cemeteries create a perspective of moving forms that prove to be more than a landscape but the natural strokes of a living man made artist expression. The depth of color, organic movement of shapes and macro level functionality that it generates all can be translated into design features that coexist with the warrior spirit and articulation.


GRAPHICS
1. Letter integrated net print 2. Atlas map 3. Thermal heat 4. Tough letter logo / wrap around print 5. Peel away beauty 6. Rock mosaic 7. Fingerpaint warrior
