International Fashion Design Competition Now Open for Registration

YDO to Host “Creative 17” for High School Students in April
 
*Do you want to shine on the Paris Fashion Week catwalk? Then take your brave first step now and sign up for the springboard to your dreams: Creative 17 - Taipei Youth Fashion Design Competition, hosted by the Taipei City Youth Development Office (YDO). This year’s edition has no limitations on theme, except that senior high school student teams should present modified ready-to-wear creations and junior high school teams should focus on makeup and hairdressing. Calling all junior and senior high school fashionistas: get together and present your summer fashion creations at Creative 17!
 
The previous four editions of the event each had a theme, the first being Halloween Party, showcasing creative transformations, the second, Riot of Color, centered on flowers, the third, Wonderful World, representing the countries participating in the Taipei 2017 Universiade, and the fourth, Retro Revisited, about fashion trends. This year’s edition breaks free from the constraints of any themes and instead only loosely requires a certain method, namely modifications of ready-to-wear clothes to give them a new life and a new look. The jurors and loyal audience are excited to see the fashion creations of Taipei’s youth live on stage.
 
The YDO said that Creative 17 offers contestants a stage to show their talent and skill from their achievements in vocational education on a high-profile platform with good media coverage, and also offers the participants a chance to meet with other young fashion creators and possibly strike up some inspiring friendships along the way.
 
Creative 17 - Taipei Youth Fashion Design Competition will be held on Tuesday April 23, 2019 at Hana Live House, the exhibition and performance space on the 10th floor of the YDO. All junior and senior high schoolers that love fashion are welcome to sign up with their teams!
 
Registration runs from February 25 to March 25, 2019 through the event website at https://goo.gl/Zpv3SY. The event is open to the public, and contestants may also bring their friends and fans when they showcase their summer look for 2019.
