A contest was recently announced that might interest George Brown students in fashion design. The North York General Hospital Fabricland Scrubs Design Challenge is inviting fashion students to design a high fashion piece using hospital scrubs and surgical gowns.
“It is a very exciting opportunity for design students to challenge themselves, to step outside their own comfort zone, to test themselves, and to implement what they have learned so far,” said Erika Larva, the curator of the contest.
Successful contestants will be invited to show their piece at the Heart of Fashion event at North York General Hospital in the spring, and be mentored by Arie Assaraf of The New Trend. The winning designer will receive $2500.
