design_download competition is hotting up!

Maison Martin Margiela in the eyes of Cecilia Ku

We always get excited when entries start flying in for another SHOWstudio competition - not least the design_download competition for our upcoming Fashion Revolution exhibition, challenging viewers to create their own bespoke masterpiece from our designer pattern archive. We've extended the deadline to 31 August 2009 and are throwing open the floor to entries from all quarters. The only requirement is to download one of SHOWstudio's seven exclusive garment patterns (from the likes of Junya Watanabe, Alexander McQueen and Maison Martin Margiela, no less) and craft your own fashion homage to some of contemporary fashion's greatest. The finest, as selected by a panel including Nick Knight, Alistair O'Neill and Professor Penny Martin, will be displayed alongside over twenty SHOWstudio projects (including original garments from Comme des Garçons, John Galliano and Nicolas Ghesquière of Balenciaga) as part of SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution at Somerset House.
