Menswear Fashion Week 2012 is returning March 23rd-31st, 2012 and they are holding a great photo/runway competition. It’s in two parts and I’m going to note down what you need to do, and, if you should win, what you stand to gain!

The contest will run from February 2012 to March 2012 and comprise two parts. The first part is a photo contest where MWFW want to see your personal style and expression. Using items from their contest sponsors, create an image that ‘represents you’. So, creative styling and uniqueness are the qualities they are looking for. Here’s the sponsors – Aleida, Cheerno,  D.N.A Cloning Facility , Egoisme, Gabriel, Gizza, Havok, Legal Insanity, Rfyre, Starchild, [sYs], Vaya Con Dios and Zanzo. Plenty of choice and some great designers, there.

1. Casually You: We want to see you and your casual style. You may select anything from your wardrobe to show you and your personal sense of everyday style.
