Fame for Fashionistas



The 2013 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize has launched at The Dorchester with a high profile panel of international judges from the world of fashion including DaniellaHelayel, Caroline Issa, Stephen Jones, Nicholas Oakwell, Rupert Sanderson, and Stephen Webster.
 
Following the worldwide interest that the prize has generated in the fashion industry, the prize has widened to invite applications from young design talent of ready-to-wear or premium accessories brands based in countries where there are Dorchester Collection hotels: the UK, France, Italy, Switzerland and the US.
 
In a further move designed to encourage emerging international design talent, the prize will now feature additional panels of judges recruited by Dorchester Collection hotels in each of these countries.
 
The grand final will be on 29 October 2013 at The Dorchester, where five shortlisted designers will be invited to stage a catwalk presentation. The judges of the 2013 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize will seek to award one designer who best demonstrates original aesthetic flair, a capability for future critical distinction and commercial success. The winner's work must also evoke the spirit of Dorchester Collection's iconic hotels and, therefore, project a sense of individuality, luxury, style and craftsmanship.
 
The 2013 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize carries an endowment of £25,000 to help establish the designer's brand, a two night stay at a Dorchester Collection hotel and, in a new element launched this year, the prospect of one-to-one mentoring from a selection of the judges. www.dorchestercollection.com
