This year, the winners will also be able to select a course of their preference at the institute. The choices include Accessories Design in Milan; Fashion Business in Paris; and Fashion Styling in London, each worth over $5,800.

The Singapore edition, which took place earlier this year, saw the emergence of three very promising young Singapore talents: Silvia Teh, Lionel Low, and Benjamin Neo, who went on to compete in the regional level that effectuated during Singapore Fashion Week (SGFW) in May.

Working with top names in the industry like Editor-in-Chief Kenneth Goh, and Senior Fashion Editor, Windy Aulia, of Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore; Singapore designer Thomas Wee; and Founder of online e-retailer Inverted Edge, Debra Langley, the three finalist designers were given an exciting chance to showcase their collection for three weeks in Scotts Square, one of Singapore’s renowned fashion malls.

It was an exciting win for Silvia Teh, who walked away with a scholarship for a master’s programme in Fashion and Luxury Brand Management at the renowned Istituto Marangoni, and a $10,000 cash sponsorship from Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore.
