With a Downtown HQ that boasts exhibit-worthy wall art, a massive auditorium, a gourmet café and many more five-star amenities, Guess sure knows how to keep the creative juices flowing. As part of their search for top local talent, the LA-based lifestyle brand is giving FIDM students the ultimate chance to turn their dream denim design into reality—and score a cash prize of $5,000 along the way. (Nice!)
No stranger to putting their pupils in the hot seat, the stylish school is challenging students to show off their chops by creating a Guess-inspired denim look. The top five finalists will head to the label's envy-inducing campus to hear career-boosting advice from pro denim designers and take home material to transform their idea into a real wearable piece. The winner will be announced in January, and the No. 1 look will be produced and sold on the brand's website worldwide. (Exciting!)
