Applying is easy. Simply create and submit a moodboard that captures the style you would like to develop as a designer, the fashion enterprise you would like to build, or the role you would like to play in the fashion industry. You'll also need to provide a support statement outlining your vision.
Fashion mood boards are a great tool that can help inspire the vision of your brand, collections or business, and also keep you on track when working through a design project. There are numerous online tools you can use – with Canva just one example of many https://www.canva.com/learn/make-a-mood-board/ You could even create a physical mood board then take a photo and submit.
How do I submit my entry?

You should then create a Google Drive folder, upload your file, and share the link on the Application Form. Make sure you make the Google Drive folder a Shared folder so that we can access.
What are your top tips for including in the mood board?
The joy of a mood board is that it can be anything you wish it to be. If you want to become a fashion designer, we suggest including images that reflect the style of designer you wish to become. If you want to work in the industry, we suggest you look at words or careers or images of the area of fashion which are important to you. If you wish to create your own fashion enterprise, we suggest you combine both images and phrases which describe your vision for your enterprise, your customers and your services.
When do applications close?
You can apply for the Fashion Queensland Emerging Fashion Scholarship up until 31 October 2023.
