Hermès has launched an international scarf design competition, open to designers, artists, and illustrators. Hermès will purchase the competition winners' designs for reproduction in one of its future collections.
Around 10 candidates will be selected by the Hermès jury to be invited to spend two days at Hermès, in Paris, during November 2019. Following this period of immersion, they will finalize their scarf design to be ready by Mid-January 2020 at the latest.
The design of the scarf can be created exclusively by hand or using computer graphics. The two techniques may also be combined.
Applications will be assessed based on their quality of the composition; relevance of the narrative; accuracy of any historical or cultural references; skill of execution; and ability to merge innovation with tradition.
The deadline for registration is May 31, 2019.
