Inviting Teens Who Have Passion for Fashion

Teens with a love of fashion and style are challenged to unleash their creativity for an opportunity to earn a tuition scholarship and be named a winner in The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition 2013.

Two national competition grand prize winners will each earn a half-tuition scholarship to attend an Art Institutes school, receive a VIP trip to New York City, participate in a “meet and greet” at Seventeen magazine’s New York City offices, have lunch with a Seventeen Style Pro, receive a $500 shopping spree at DKNY with the Style Pro, and a $500 gift card to shop anywhere in the Big Apple.

“It is our distinct honor to present the eighth annual Passion for Fashion Competition. We believe the competition serves as a vehicle where aspiring fashion professionals can express their zeal for an industry that is both dynamic and rewarding. It is a fun opportunity for high school seniors to showcase their creative ideas for the opportunity to earn a scholarship towards a hands-on fashion education,” said John Pufahl, Vice President, Academic Affairs for The Art Institutes.

The competition consists of two separate categories: 1) Fashion Design and 2) Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management.

For the Fashion Design category, entrants submit three original sketches of an evening wear garment; and for the Fashion Marketing & Merchandising and Retail Management category, entrants submit a fashion trend forecast board.
