DHL is proud to reveal the three finalists of the DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship. The scholarship aims to identify Australia's hottest up-and-coming fashion exporter and assist them in achieving international growth.

The 2010 finalists are:

• bec & bridge – Designers Bec Cooper and Bridget Yorsten of Sydney
• Flannel - Designer Kristy Lawrence of Perth
• Nana Judy – Designer Glenn Coleman of Melbourne

The scholarship was judged by three of Australia's top fashion and exporting industry leaders:

• Graeme Lewsey, Marketing & Communications Director IMG Fashion, Asia Pacific Region
• Nicola Finetti, one of Australia's outstanding fashion designers
• Jamila Dlala, Fashion & Apparel Industry Vertical Manager, DHL Express Australia

“As a brand, bec & bridge is exciting and fresh. Their designs are quintessentially Australian with a point of distinction, which will be a very important differential for them in the international world of fashion. I like their style and feel they have a solid business,” says Nicola Finetti.

Graeme Lewsey says, “Flannel as a brand oozes confidence. Designer Kristy Lawrence has a clear idea on where she wants to take the brand and a strategy that should ensure her international success.

“Nana Judy's designs perfectly epitomise casual dressing for the urban Australian male. They have recognised success locally and designer Glenn Coleman has clear and quantifiable goals to help the brand expand overseas,” added Lewsey.

Nicola Finetti said the scholarship entries were of a high caliber and was pleased with the number of talented young Australian designers with exciting careers ahead of them.

The winner of the DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship will be announced in the coming week.
