Botany… the world of plants. Another florals challenge? Think again! Our challenge might be botany themed but please steer away from kitsch florals or cutesy rose patterns. For this design challenge, we are looking for the darker side of botany, the side that scratches and stings. Take a look at vintage textiles and botanical illustration, with their detailed pencil drawings and fine line patterns. 

Think about the botanists of the past, bravely setting off into the unknown with their jars and notebooks, crawling through jungles, crossing oceans and navigating deserts to discover and classify the flowers, trees and herbs that have helped shape history. For this challenge we want you to be that adventurer! 

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.
