INVITATION to participate in the BALTIC FASHION AWARD 2014
The BALTIC FASHION AWARD is an international fashion design contest for creative collections from the Baltic Sea region. Outstanding performances with an individual style in the world of vogue are honoured. All fashion designers holding a completed apprenticeship or several years’ professional experience, who were born and live or work in the Baltic Sea satellite states and the others of Scandinavia (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Germany, Norway, Iceland) are eligible to compete for the prize.
Thanks to the expansion of the EU, the Baltic Sea region is becoming more and more interconnected. New opportunities are springing up to build bridges between north, east and central Europe over the connective element of the Baltic Sea and beyond.
With its emphasis on the cultural variety within the Baltic Sea region, the BALTIC FASHION AWARD intends to draw attention to this important economic and cultural circle, which is also rich in tradition, from the whole of Northern Europe and even abroad.
Fashion, when used as an entity between economy and culture, is a medium which lends identity, brings central themes into sharp focus and engenders an image transfer and a high level of positive feeling, as well as a considerable interest, both domestic and worldwide, in nature. With the BALTIC FASHION AWARD, the creators of many diverse fashion directions from the Baltic Sea region have the chance to measure themselves against each other in competition and to advance to the point of having a unique, unmistakeable image in the international arena.
