What sounds more exciting to the culturally inclined, fashion-savvy Torontonian than staying up all night to roam the streets of downtown in the midst of annual art fest Scotiabank Nuit Blanche? Maybe try participating in the event yourself and winning a few things, too!

The annual Art of Fashion design competition offers emerging designers a chance to compete all night long (just like Lionel Richie…) for a sponsorship package, including a look-book photo shoot with help from the Plutino Group, Elite Models, and photographer Richard Bernardin, as well as year-long public relations services and management from KeeshanPR and Fashion Group International.

Showcased at the Pantages Hotel during Nuit Blanche on October 1, competitors will be required to create six outfits based on this year’s theme, choreology—which is the translation of dance into fashion and the relationship between the two. The competition is all about marketing your brand and getting exposure to launch a career in fashion design.

So, designers, you’ve got nothing to lose! To apply, head to artoffashion.org; the deadline is August 22.
