Since 1992, TFI's New Labels Fashion Design Competition has featured the hottest up-coming design talent in Canada. One of the most anticipated events of the year, this national design platform showcases what Canada's emerging designers have to offer.
Here is your chance to win The Suzanne Rogers Award For Most Promising New Label, a CASH award of $25,000, as well as other EXCITING prizes! In addition, the top few finalists will be featured in the TFI New Labels runway show that will be held mid-April/early May in Toronto. This must-see event on the fashion calender attracts top retailers, tastemakers, influencers and fashionable consumers.
WAIT that's not all! New Labels is not just Canada's original young designer fashion competition, it's a boot camp for new designers where you can gain valuable knowledge about how to create a newsworthy yet marketable line, how to edit your line and what's involved in planning a fashion show. For many, this is the MOST VALUABLE part of the competition.
The competition kicks off in the fall and ends with the fashion show gala in the spring where the winner is announced. During the 6-month competition, designers work with the judges and TFI's Executive Director to improve their line and their chance of winning. It's a lot of hard work and tight deadlines; are you up for the challenge?
