Have you ever had an idea for a new fashion piece in your mind and wished you could find it in stores? Makes the shopping experience horrible doesn’t it? ;)
Here’s your chance to design your own pieces and have it made for the world to love and wear! All you need to do is submit your sketches to Sketch Street. The winning designs will be selected based on relevancy to the running theme, public votes and commercial viability. All the hard work in sampling and manufacturing will be taken care of the good people there who will work closely with you, the designer :)
Check out this past winning design and how it turned from a sketch into something really cool!
