Cat Footwear has introduced a new design initiative, ‘Fashion Your Future’, which will provide financial support and promotion for the most talented of young designers.
Challenged with reinterpreting the iconic Colorado Boot, students from leading fashion universities in the UK will have the opportunity to submit their designs in the hope of joining the best talent from around the world. The winner will then get to work with Cat’s own product designers and their triumphant creation will be taken forward into production. First though, the budding designers will have to win over the illustrious panel of judges, including Alex Mattsson and Martine Rose. The winners won’t be announced until January, but for now you can follow the student’s submissions and see what advice the expert members of the panel have been dishing out on Cat’s UK Tumblr.
