‘Fashion Your Future’ has been created to support and ‘Break New Ground’ with leading design talent selected from some of the world’s premier fashion institutions. Cat Footwear have already worked with Martine Rose, James Long and Alex Mattsson as well as supporting fashion graduates and emerging design talent such as Elise Ngobi, Mayada Khammu and Imtayaz Qassim (who we interviewed a few months ago!).
Fashion your Future will provide a platform for young designers through financial support and promotion, alongside mentoring from a prestigious panel of judges – composed of influential designers, key fashion editors, writers and buyers.
Cat’s iconic Colorado Boot silhouette has been chosen as the boot that students will be tasked with re-designing. The winner will work side-by-side with Cat’s product designers and their design will be taken forward into commercialisation.
The ‘Fashion Your Future’ winners will be announced in January.
To follow the student’s submissions and advice from the expert judging panel follow the Cat Footwear UK Tumblr http://catfootwearuk.tumblr.com/
