Westpac Young Fashion Designer Award - Voting now online

For the second year running Westpac is holding its Young Designer Award in the lead-up to NZFW.  This year's entries showcase the considerable talent coming through the ranks with young designers like Jessica Grubisa, Roxanna Zamani and Glen Prentice joined by Ruri Castillo, Georgia Currie, Laura Marshall, Trish Peng & Qiuiae Wong, Lucie Sutichunta, Helen Trethewey and Miriam White. The quality of work across the board is very good indeed, passionate creations from a new generation brimming with ideas. So, don't dilly dally, get in behind your favourite designer by voting for them here on the Westpac Young Designer Facebook page. Simply click through the 'contests' tab to see the entries and you are allowed one vote per day. The designer with most votes wins the more-than-handy $5k prize plus dedicated business banking advice, one of the vital tools for any young designer. We are biased toward Jessica Grubisa (above) as she is of course Black assistant fashion editor but the competition from the likes of Zamani (below) is fierce.
