Buscando talento nuevo

Breaking out...Tomorrow, the coordinators of the Puerto Rico High Fashion Week (PRHFW), which will be held in the Puerto Rico Convention Center, will hold auditions for new fashion designers to participate in the annual event. Aspiring designers should report to the offices of the PRHFW between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m in the Edificio Única.

According to Caridad Fernández, president of the PRHFW, "One of the fundamental objectives of this event is to develop the fashion industry in Puerto Rico. We have a lot of talent and we want to give a hand to new designers, so they can develop."

In order to qualify, new designers should have a minimum of three years of professional experience, they must be prepared to present a portfolio that demonstrates evidence of press coverage of their work, and three designs that illustrate their creativity.

In addition, the applicants must have the economic capacity to cover the cost of production of 10 designs for the fashion runaway. All applicants should be prepared to be evaluated and supervised by a committee of PRHFW participating designers.
