Beverly Hills, LA: Dorchester Collection Launches 2013 Fashion Prize!
The 2013 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize was launched at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles last week, April 4th, with a high profile of judges from the fashion world including Derek Blasberg, Catherine Bloom, Penny Lovell and Gelila Puck. Past judges have been just as chic, including Manolo Blahnik, Fransisco Costa, Thom Browne and Daphene Guinness.
The previous week, the UK and Italian launch events took place and Your Coffee Break was there to cover the happening.
Following the worldwide interest that the prize has generated in the fashion industry, the prize has widened to invite applications from young design talent of ready-to-wear or premium accessories brands based in countries where there are Dorchester Collection hotels: the UK, France, Italy, Switzerland and the US.
“We’re thrilled to continue to support upcoming designers and launch the 2013 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize with a new international format. Our aim is to continue to attract a high standard of talent; it’s been rewarding to follow the success of previous winners and finalists, knowing that the prize has helped them to make that next step to global success and recognition,” Christopher Cowdray, chief executive officer of Dorchester Collection, said in a statement.
Applications can be found at the Dorchester Collection website, and registration is open until May 31.
