Inspired by memorable fashion eras, leading fashion design academy, Fashion Portfolio Academy, is excited to launch a Fashion Era Competition that will encourage and inspire future fashion designers to sketch a modern and wearable ensemble.
 
“The 2014 Fashion Era Games will take aspiring designers step-by-step through the process of developing a unique and modern design, much like today’s fashion icons,” says Fashion Portfolio Academy founder Francisca Pineda. 
 
Fashion Portfolio Academy will be making a correlating video series on how fashion history inspires leading designers like Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen and Miuccia Prada. The competition begins in February and runs through March. A panel of fashion history and design leaders will pick a first, second and third place winter in April.
 
About Fashion Portfolio Academy: 
Fashion Portfolio Academy was created to help aspiring fashion designers explore the fashion industry, prior to making huge financial commitments as high as $200,000 for higher education. 
 
FPA offers the top internationally sold online fashion design courses as well as private mentoring. The founder, Francisca Pineda is an award winning fashion designer with over 15 years of experience designing apparel and accessories for New York's top brands. 
 
She is currently the creative director for luxury accessory brand BHAVA. An advocate for ethical practices in the industry, she started the Ethical Fashion Academy in 2012, a community focused initiative that organizes eco-fashion events in New York City and a yearly hands-on Fashion Workshop in Costa Rica.
