L&Co., an industry-wide known brand engagement company, and the Accessories Council, the only non-profit organization dedicated to serving the accessories industry, have joined forces to launch the first Emerging Designers Competition.
This initiative is the first of its kind and it will identify the country’s most high-potential and up-and-coming design and business talent in the accessories industry. Executives from the retail, fashion and accessories industries, along with representatives from L&Co. and the Accessories Council, along with its' members will review all applications submitted.
The judging panel will choose five finalists, but only one winner will be chosen to receive a full year of mentoring and full-service strategy and communications support from L&Co., the Accessories Council and other industry partners who have agreed to volunteer their services to cultivate young talent.
All applications must be submitted through the website no later than Wednesday, October 8th. The winner will be announced on Monday, November 3rd, 2014 at the Annual ACE Awards, an annual accessories industry event held in New York City and produced by the Accessories Council.
