After our “Cabinet of Curiosities” challenge, we weren’t quite ready to close the door on our historical artifacts, and brought a scrap of fabric back with us: lace. Obscuring yet revealing, this diaphanous material has been a staple of women’s wardrobes for centuries – so it’s time for an FRS update, wouldn’t you agree?

No, we’re not asking you to get out the needlework (although by all means do if the mood takes you!) but for this month’s leggings challenge, we want you to design your very own lace pattern! Geometric, illustrative, abstract – the style is up to you; we’ll just be looking for the most intricate and elaborate of gossamer-fine prints. Sharpen up those pencils & get designing!

This competition is for leggings. 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 FRS 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.
