Through this award, BT is proudly investing in Australia’s young and gifted emerging fashion designers. BT is proud to be encouraging emerging designers to reach their full potential by not only investing in, but supporting the growth of Australian designers.
The Award provides the winning emerging Australian fashion designer with a $10,000 cash grant and a year’s financial planning services provided by BT; two return business class flights to New York provided by Virgin Australia to further their fashion ambitions; and two mentoring sessions with two fashion industry icons provided by the Australian Fashion Chamber. Total value of the prize is $40,000.
Christopher Esber was the inaugural winner of the Award in 2013.
“Winning the BT award really helped with my business' growth, and having support with putting strategic plans in place for my business,” Mr Esber said.
