We live in the age of instant gratification - a quick click or a finger swipe and you can find any fact, access any image, and bluff any argument. So for this challenge we want to see a skill that takes longer to develop: Needlework. 

Think back to when you first picked up a needle and thread, stitched two pieces of fabric together and realized that suddenly you had the power to create anything you wanted (with a bit of practice!). We want to see modern and experimental work, using those skills! 

Remember that blanket stitch your grandmother taught you, or that time as a kid when you were obsessed with crochet, or that piece of embroidery that took you two months to finish? Use that experience and twist it. 

Dust off your sewing box, get your thimble out and get your thread on! 

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 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.
