Supima recently announced the details around its 13th Annual Supima Design Competition, which will be hosted this year for the first time in a dynamic digital format.
The virtual presentation hosted by renowned celebrity image architect, Law Roach, will be streamed on
@Supima and @LuxuryLaw through Instagram Live. The showcase, which will include a mix of prerecorded and live content, will take place on Thursday, Sept. 10th, 2020 at 3 p.m. ET, ahead of New York Fashion Week.
The Supima Design Competition supports emerging talent by enlisting designers from the nation’s top fashion schools to create capsule collections using Supima cotton fabrics. The collections are then presented in a collective digital runway show and evaluated by a panel of judges.
“I am so humbled to be part of such a wonderful program that continues to lend its platform and resources to emerging designers, especially given the impact this year has had on their education and
graduation opportunities. Supporting emerging design talent is one of the most rewarding parts of my career, and I cannot wait to see how incredible the final collections will be,” said host Law Roach.
