STOLEN GIRLFRIENDS CLUB: winner of the inaugural 2008 DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship
DHL, the world's leading express and logistics company, is calling for promising fashion exporters to enter the 2009 DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship, which will identify the country's hottest up-and-coming fashion exporter and assist them in achieving international growth.

"Last year's inaugural scholarship was a great success and the winners, Stolen Girlfriends Club, continue to show a competitive drive in expanding their brand internationally," says Jason Orlop, strategic account manager at DHL Express New Zealand.

The winner of the 2009 DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship will receive international freight to the value of NZ$10,000 and coaching in freight and logistics from DHL Express, as well as an export mentoring package from Fashion Industry New Zealand and an annual FINZ membership subscription.

"The DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship enabled us to push our expectations further and take our brand to overseas markets. We also learnt a great deal from the team at DHL Express, which has really helped with our approach to the business of fashion," says Marc Moore, creative director at Stolen Girlfriends Club.

The scholarship is open to New Zealand fashion designers who have been exporting for less than four years. Entrants are asked to complete an official application form and submit a design portfolio (or seasonal look-books) and a brief C.V by 5.00pm on Friday, 30 October, 2009.
