Laurence King sponsors YourView Fashion Students Awards

YourView is now also a free Fashion Competition opened to undergraduate fashion students worldwide. All submissions of fashion creative work in the form of apparel, illustration, photography, video, surface or textile designs are welcome.

The original idea behind YourView

Launched in January 2013 YourView was born from the unsolicited submissions of their work by members of the Modeconnect community. Modeconnect editorial team was impressed and decided to provide a space on Modeconnect website for undergraduate students to share their experience of fashion projects carried out through their studies.

Now a Fashion Competition

The nice people at Laurence King Publishing, one of the most respected creative arts publishers in London, recently noticed this new feature on Modeconnect. They liked what they saw and kindly offered to sponsor a prize worth £200 of vouchers to be used on their website to be awarded to the best profile selected amongst the three most popular published during the first half of 2013. Further 2nd and 3rd place prizes will consist respectively of 2 and 1 titles of the winners’ choice from Laurence King’s Fashion & Textile books list.

How to take part

It’s simple, Tweet the image of the work you want to submit. Include with this image your name, age, city and add #modeconnect.
Modeconnect will favour the best images tweeted this way and select amongst them potential candidates to be featured on YourView. The students who choose to take part will be interviewed about themselves and their work with extra images that makes up a YourView profile.
Participation to the competition will be confirmed only once the profile has been published on Modeconnect.

How will the winner be selected

Publication of profiles will cease at the end of May when a public poll vote will determine the three most popular entries. The popular contest will end on the 19th of June at 12.00 GMT. Modeconnect and Laurence King Publishing will allocate 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize amongst those top three and will announce the result on the 21st June. The decision once announced, will be final.


This competition is now running. It is free of charge and open to undergraduate fashion students worldwide. Students may be studying any of the following fashion courses: Design, Apparel, Communication, Promotion, Branding, Styling, Textiles, Accessories, Photography or Merchandising. The work summited can be a garment design, an illustration, a photography, a video, a surface or a textile design. The entrant must be the sole owner of the work submitted. Submission of the work authorizes Modeconnect to publish it on its site. All entries will need to provide contact email of a member of their faculty for verification purposes.
