Kerry Fashion Awards 2013

Current  and past students  have  the opportunity to enter their work for Kerry  Fashion Weekend Designer Awards 2013

The 'KFW ONE TO WATCH' category is open to all Designers in Ireland and in past years has proved to be a significant launch pad for up and coming Irish Designers.  The best news is that this category is FREE TO ENTER.  This is the only category that is FREE to enter, as KFW feel it important to support and reward new Irish fashion design talent.

The winner of this award will get national PR coverage.  KFW has strong associations with national media including IMAGE magazine, TV3 and Sunday Business Post.  The finalists will have the opportunity to show their collections at our KFW New Collections Launch Show on Friday 8th March and winners will be announced at the KFW Gala Awards DInner on Saturday 9th March 2013.

There is also the 'KFW Irish Accessory Designer of the Year 2013' award.  This is open to all Irish Accessory Designers and is only €50 to enter.
