National shoe design competition for students by Brown Shoe

Oct '05
Footwear company Brown Shoe Company Inc is looking for the shoe industry's next great designer. The company's Shoe Design Contest kicks off nationwide, inviting college students majoring in fashion, design or a related field to compete for a chance to win the ultimate prize for an aspiring designer - seeing their design become a real shoe.

The Shoe Design Contest will accept original shoe design entries through November 5, when a judging panel comprised of designers and fashion industry leaders will review all entries and choose two finalists. Finalists win an all-expenses paid trip to the Fashion Footwear Association of New York's December trade show in Manhattan, where they will spend time with Brown Shoe designers and trend watchers.

They also win the opportunity to submit a second design, from which a final winner will be selected. The final winner's design will be put into the production process, and a sample will be made. The winner also will be Brown Shoe's guest at the World Shoe Association's Las Vegas shoe show in February, and receive a cash prize of $5,000.

"Brown Shoe is committed to programs that encourage young talent. Through this Shoe Design Contest we are providing rising designers with real world experience and the opportunity to make contacts within the fashion industry," said Brown Shoe Recruitment Director Geoff Green. "Additionally, this contest is ideal for building relationships that ultimately may attract more great young designers into our industry."
