Emergence provides an incredible opportunity to Vancouver’s young, up and coming designers. Starting up your own brand in 2018, with little resources and time, is not an easy task. Many of our designers have day jobs just to pay the bills. Hustling on their own time and in the after hours trying to achieve their dreams. CLE Management is passionate about supporting local artists, networking in the industry and helping connect and collaborate youth. Our designers have been given the Design Challenge to put together two looks that combine their own brand image with the traditional derby fashion of the Deighton Cup. The $300 Grand Prize will be given to the designer that does the best job of executing this challenge. Emergence comes from nowhere yet everywhere. We will emerge.
