PVH Corp owned brand Tommy Hilfiger, launched the second edition of the Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge. This global program supports entrepreneurial start-up and scale-up stage businesses to develop solutions that promote inclusive and positive change in fashion. After a successful first year, the company is excited to continue to work on identifying opportunities that support the advancement of the fashion industry.
Businesses interested in this initiative can submit their project proposals focusing on inclusive fashion. These applicants will be narrowed down to six finalists over a multi-stage four-month process. They will be invited to develop their project plans with the support of a team of dedicated Tommy Hilfiger subject-matter experts at the Campus of the Future in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. They will pitch their finalised concepts at the global Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge Final Event in early 2020, where a prestigious jury panel will award €150,000 among two winners to support their ventures.
The winners will also receive a year-long mentorship with Tommy Hilfiger’s experts globally as well as INSEAD experts, in addition to a place on the INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Program (ISEP). An additional €10,000 will be awarded to the finalist who wins the “Audience Favorite Vote”.
