French fashion hous Hermès in collaboration with ezine designboom have organized an international design competition called Les Cravates Par Hermes.
“Open to applicants from around the world, the competition calls upon professional designers, students and design buffs to create a new pattern that is either a re-interpretation of the classic Hermès pattern or something entirely unique. The winners will receive a royalty-based license contract and a cash prize.
More than a conceptual design competition, this is a call for production. It is the ambition of Hermès to produce the best entries and this is the REAL benefit of this contest.”
There are four pirzes for this contest.
The designer of the winning entry will receive a royalty-based license contract
While first prize €3000, second prize is €2000 and third prize is €1000.
The contest deadline is August 1, 2009.
