We live in hard fashion times! Hermès just launched a graphic design competition with Designboom.
Opening up to new prints and ideas is an incredible opportunity for new designers but also a popular maneuver from the French luxury house. With a given theme (animals, flowers, geometric design, horses, marine life) and silk as canvas, the contests’ prizes range from €1,000 to €3,000 ($1,400 to $4,225). Not even enough to buy a Birkin!
