I recently received a lovely email from fashion retailer WAREHOUSE, informing me of a competition known as Talent Spot hosted in our very own hometown Belfast. The concept is, WAREHOUSE are opening a beautiful shiny new store in the prestigious Victoria Square shopping centre. Not only do they want to provide us Belfast ones with sensational styles, but they want to combine the creativeness from their collections with the creativity of Belfast’s community. This therefore is a shout out to all the budding creative talents of our diverse city of craft and flair. If these categories are your niche then this competition is yours for the grabbing: Singer/Song writer, Artist, Illustrator, Graphic Designer, Film, Poetry and Writing.
This is an opportunity to not only have your work showcased, but presented by a brand that has originated from fashion capital London, aiming to provide ‘Design for the High Street’. This contemporary brand from the get go, aims to stand out from fast fashion and bring distinct designs to help us not get lost in the noise of standard trends. It is with this same class and establishment your work could be exhibited to the admiring eye of Belfast’s intrigued shoppers, anticipating the wonders behind the window. This incomparable competition is like no other, this is a rare chance to mix classic fashion with original unseen raw creative talent right from the heart of this wondrous city. Personally, I think it is an opportunity not to be missed!
