We like to shake things up here at FRS. So this month, rather than sending you on far-flung flights of fantasy, we’re taking our latest design challenge back to basics. Waaay back! After all, you guys use your brush strokes and pen marks to make so many incredible shapes and designs that we forget that the line itself is also a thing of beauty. So we’re putting this humblest of design elements in the spotlight with our “Striking Stripes” challenge!

Now the concept may feel a little restrictive, but we’re big fans of the idea that restriction breeds creativity! From delicate washes of color to intensely detailed linear forms, we want you to show us everything you can create with a simple striped pattern.

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.
