Young Designer of the Year

10 semi-finalists in the Young Designer of the Year competition have been announced and voting begins today

The Young Designer of the Year 2016 competition has proved to be more popular than ever since its launch in May, when we invited young designers to create a wedding dress design. We were absolutely delighted to receive so many creative and inspiring competition entries from young designers across the country. We had the challenging task of selecting only 10 wedding dress design mood boards to compete for a place in the final, and details of the ten semi-finalists are announced below.

Here’s where you come in; we want you to vote for your favourite mood board design below. Online voting will run from Friday 6th November to Friday 20th November.

The five mood boards with the most votes will go through to the final of the competition, and the young designers will be invited to make their wedding dress which will be worn by a professional model and showcased on the runways of our Wedding Journal Shows in Belfast, Dublin and Cork in January. A celebrity panel of fashion judges will then chose the one winning dress and its designer will be named as the Young Designer of the Year 2016!
