Due to the fact that the fabric designs of the top 20 contestants are very different and featured designs, some changes were made in the fabric production planning, and the production process and therefore the Second Jury Evaluation was postponed to a later date. Stay tuned for developments regarding the process.

Contest Coach

Dear competitors,
I am very happy to be getting into a joint process with you as part of the Doku Fabric Design Contest.
It is hard to choose a design and a style for your dream clothes, however what is even harder than that is combining that with the right and unique fabric.
I invite you to a special working environment where creativity has no limit, innovative point of views stand out and your unique expressions get the red-carpet treatment; this working environment will be a laboratory where your imaginationmeets the authentic and rare fabrics.
What will emerge when custom design fabrics that match up with our cultural heritage, modern life and your unique concepts and that require a lot of labor meet with present-day authentic styles already excite me and I am sure it excites you too.
I cannot wait to see, touch and evaluate the fabrics you designed and give life to a collection with unique designs.
When you are designing cloths, you can think limitlessly andfreely and work with creativity on any type of fabric that can be sewed and worn. All the details such as color, pattern and weaving are up to your creativeness and choice.
You create, I design…
I wish you all success in advance.


How to Apply?

Besides these, many factors such as attributions of the target demographic, function, fashion of the moment, conditions of manufacturing, and cost are connected to each other.
