Competitive Industry

It is the month of competitions! Maybe there is finally one good outcome to the downfall in the economic market from last year, because top Companys are just giving stuff away these days, yes FREE STUFF, everyone tune back in!!
Or maybe it is the retail that got hit the hardest because many top names in our Fashion memos are finding more resourceful ways of recruiting talent, making this a win win situation for whatever side you take..because lets face it none of us are going to say no to FREE, whether you need it or not!

You dont have to be no giraffe Giselle to walk this walk..
<3 Benetton were hosting a modelling competition "ITS:MY:TIME", where thousands of applicants entered to be voted by the public and other aspiring models to become one of twenty new faces of the benetton campaign to be held in NewYork.
Best bit: its not your typical long legged beauty search..the weirder you are personality wise, the better- so let your inner child out and express yourSELF to the nation!

<3 H&M have been searching for a fresh inspiration behind their new 'The Blues#' denim collection. Many fashionistas from your go-to online street style guide 'Lookbook.nu' have already submitted their style of combining anything blue from H&M. If you think you've got Blues Clue'd up then make your mark..

<3 My all time favourite magazine ELLE have launched the ULTIMATE competition at the beginning of March. (*deep breath*) They are on the look out for the NEXT TOP STYLIST with their 'Shop Girl to Stylist' comp...and you guessed it..im a shop girl.. I am an aspiring stylist.. I HAVE to have this!!
If you think you've got what it takes to style the nation then get your glad rags on, photograph your own style or photoshoot another, once youve uploaded your image to the website- the voting begins. And the top 25 finalists go through to be judged by the panel of Expert Elle Fashion Know All's (as I like to refer to them as :). Once luckyluckylucky (I cannot enthersize this enough) winner (MEEEEEEEE??!!) will get the opportunity to help style a shoot for the September issue and then go on to work as an Intern at you guessed it, The Fashion Bible 'ELLE'. (DREAM JOB)
Beat me to it and get yours in pronto..I'm on the case already :)

<3 Last but not least I thought I'd add a local, more personal opportunity for anyone who is a creative intersting in bag designs or any form of drawing/illustration, as J Model Management in Birmingham are on the search for a design to grace the front of their goodie bags to go out to all guests at the J Fashion Show event from 26th-29th May.
