For teenagers who fantasize about a career in the fashion industry, there may be no bigger opportunity to make that happen than The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition.

High school seniors from across the U.S. and Canada send their best fashion designs and fashion marketing, merchandising and retail management concepts to New York City where a panel of fashion insiders and industry professionals judge their entries for originality, design rationale and execution.

The panel of judges for the Passion for Fashion Competition 2008 includes: Mel Rose, first runner-up on "America's Next Top Model" Season 7, now a fashion designer and full-time model, and graduate of The Art Institute of California - San Francisco; Stacey Monsen, a Men's Design Director for Steve & Barry's; Patty Hughes, of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, who hosts a fashion segment on a national television program; and Bruce Dempsey, Vice President, Academic Affairs Specialist for The Art Institutes.

At stake is a full-tuition scholarship to study (i) Fashion Design or (ii) Fashion Marketing, Fashion Merchandising or Fashion & Retail Management at The Art Institute that each grand prize winner represents in the Competition.

And for icing on the cake, the grand prize winner in each category wins a trip to New York Fashion Week and a chance to mingle with the staff of Seventeen magazine.

"Each year this Competition draws more talented teens that have a real love, enthusiasm and talent for fashion. Every year the quantity and quality of the students entering increases," says, Bruce E. Dempsey, Vice President, Academic Affairs Specialist for The Art Institutes and lead judge in the Passion for Fashion Competition 2008.

The theme for the Fashion Design category in the Passion for Fashion Competition 2008 is "evening wear." Judges will be looking for innovative and original approaches to formal wear for both young men and women. The winners will be announced next week in New York City.
