RAW - Theme Description

Architectural tailoring. Stoic detailing. Utilitarian glamour. Sheer craftsmanship.

Art of Fashion presents RAW: this year's Design Competition. An exploration of fashion at its core, the exhibit draws inspiration from the unassuming details of the everyday. Through unfettered focus on technique, RAW celebrates the intimacy between designers and materials by breeding couture from objects of common origin. A stunning return to the fundamental tenets that define the craft of design.

10 of Canada’s top emerging designers have been selected  to participate in the Art of Fashion 2012 ‘RAW’ fashion design & exhibit competition. 

Vying for the titles of Most Promising Designer and Best Exhibit they will create a collection of six unique outfits based on their interpretation of this year’s theme. 

They will bring your collection to life through innovative displays, using any creative platform they wish to enhance their collections.

The finalists for the design competition were selcted by a panel of industry judges and the Art of Fashion board of directors.   
Combining years of expertise, the industry judging panel will cast their final vote to determine who will be awarded Art of Fashion’s Most Promising Designer 2012.
