Dear Pennies,

It’s Pen here to announce the Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designer Competition. If you are an emerging fashion designer then you need to submit your application to the Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designer Competition! Why should you submit your application? Because, you’ll have a chance to win the following grand prize: a $20,000 website from F22 Designs, a free runway show in Charleston Fashion Week® 2012, a booth at the AmericasMart® Atlanta Apparel Market 2011, $2,500 in promotional and branding materials and services from Vapor Apparel, also one piece of the winning designers choice will be featured on Runway Passports Online Boutique, plus a $5,000 cash prize.

The 2009 winner, Marysia Dobrzanska Reeves is enjoying huge success with her swimwear/resort line which can now be seen in Vogue and Elle. The collection is also being sold at Barneys New York. It is the Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designer Competition that helped Marysia get noticed and is the foundation of her success. That being said, what are you waiting for? It’s time to take your career as a designer to the next level. The deadline for application submission is Friday, October 1st but p.s. this will most likely be extended. Either way, the sooner you enter, the better!
