Designer Of the Year 2020
The annual search for the Men’s Folio Designer of the Year is back!

In conjunction with our 23rd anniversary and The Prime Issue, we are providing a platform for the most promising young menswear designers to showcase their works on Men’s Folio.

We’re officially open for submissions, and here is how you can enter to become the next Men’s Folio Designer of the Year. We encourage all contestants to read the guidelines carefully.

Entrants must be between 18 to 35 years old. Contestants will be required to submit three sketches of original menswear looks, never before showcased to the public, complete with footwear and accessories, along with a mood board of the inspiration behind the collection.


Design Brief
The sketches are to be inspired by the theme “Rebel Rebel”, in which designers will present their take on the theme through a menswear collection, with looks that are wearable and commercially-viable.
