DHL, the world’s leading express and logistics company, is calling for emerging fashion exporters to enter the seventh annual DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship.

Designed to identify the country’s up-and-coming fashion exporters and assist them in achieving international growth, the scholarship is open to New Zealand designers who have been exporting for less than five years.

The scholarship has become an early identifier of young talent in New Zealand, with previous winners such as Stolen Girlfriends Club, Lonely Hearts, twenty-seven names and I Love Ugly going on to receive significant international recognition.

The winner of the scholarship will receive international freight to the value of NZ$10,000, as well as coaching in freight and logistics from DHL Express. Entrants are required to complete an official application form and submit look-books from previous collections. Applications will be judged across several categories, including ‘brand and design’, ‘sales and marketing’ and ‘export strategy’.

Entries close Friday 10 October 2014. Applicants can find more information and apply via the website: www.dhlfashionscholarship.co.nz.
