MyItThings.com - a leading publisher of user-generated fashion content - just announced their latest online contest designed to discover and showcase emerging talent. Their It Designer Contest will be judged by Project Runway alum Malan Breton; the former Editor-in-Chief of Life & Style Sheryl Berk; C Magazine Executive Editor, Nathan Cooper; designer Keith Lissner; and MyItThings Editor-in-Chief and Co-Founder, Yuli Ziv. Through July 15, designers can submit five previously-created looks, and site users will then vote for their top 10 fave designers. The overall winner will be determined by a combined vote of 50% by the judges and 50% by the community.
The three finalists will each receive $1500 toward their Spring 2009 collection and a New York runway show in October to show off their designs, while the grand prize winner will receive $5000 and an exclusive collection on MyItThings.com. "The contest offers great exposure for new and emerging designers -- especially students and graduates," says Ziv. "MyItThings.com's social platform provides them with a unique chance to get immediate feedback on their designs from the site's community of trendsetters, tastemakers and fashionistas."
