INVISTA, one of the world’s largest integrated producers of polymers and fibres and owner of the LYCRA brand, is searching for the designers of the future. For the third year, the LYCRA Future Designers Award will be presented at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards in November to the student or graduate who demonstrates outstanding, unique design and innovation talent.
 
The LYCRA Future Designers Award is now open for entries, with the eventual winning designer receiving an exclusive opportunity to work with expert mentors at INVISTA and receiving a prize to help the winner invest in a business plan, press and fabrics with LYCRA fibre to support the creation of the winning collection.
 
Denise Sakuma, Global Brand Communications Director for INVISTA Apparel & Advanced Textiles says, “We share WGSN’s passion for finding and nurturing new talent, so we’re very excited to support the LYCRA Future Designers Award again for 2014.”
 
“Innovation and creativity are the foundations of the LYCRA fibre brand, so we will be looking for a designer who brings fresh ideas, vision and inspiration to the market, someone who has a strong sense of their own brand, a clear understanding of their target customer and of where they would like to take their career and business in the future.”
 
Lauretta Roberts, WGSN Global Fashion Awards Director, says: “Finding talent at a student level is key to ensuring an ever-evolving, innovative and fresh fashion industry.  In INVISTA, with its LYCRA brand, we have a sponsor that is committed to working with, and investing in, new talent, offering students and recent graduates a fantastic and unique opportunity to work with experts in their field.”
 
To enter, participants must submit designs, including sketches, moodboards and other supporting material, for a minimum of four and a maximum of six pieces/looks that could be manufactured using LYCRA fibre brand products. At least three of the pieces/looks must be intimate apparel, swimwear, active sportswear or hosiery/tights categories.
 
The 2013 LYCRA Future Designers title was awarded to Lucy Gardner who graduated from Falmouth University, and the 2012 one was awarded to Shireeka Devlin who graduated from the London College of Fashion.
 
WGSN 2014 Global Fashion Awards will be judged by an elite panel of global experts, set to be announced in June. Previous judges include industry influencers Giles Deacon, Stephen Jones, Rankin, Laura Bailey.
