Collaboration has become a pillar of fashion, as brands and designers look to creatives to add their own flare to a design. In this spirit and as a means of providing emerging designers with a platform, PacSun has put out an open call to participate in its Spring ‘21 Design Competition. To usher in a season of optimism and hope, the retailer is encouraging budding designers to share their own original ideas for a PacSun T-shirt for the chance to win a one-on-one mentoring session with Chinatown Market founder Mike Cherman, in addition to having the T-shirt produced and sold by the retailer.

PacSun is offering individuals at any and every skill level a chance to show off their creativity, individuality and innovation through the competition. Aligning with its Spring ‘21 offering, participants are free to interpret the collection themes — which include mindfulness, community, self-reflection, sustainability, diversity and inclusion — through their own lens. All submissions should tap into one or multiple of these themes. Those interested can read the instructions below to apply and qualify to be among the five finalists chosen.
