Individuality and self-expression through art has been the trend in lifestyle these days. From food to interior design and from the clothes we wear, everyone seems to lean toward artisan or custom-made stuff.
DC Shoes, the world-renowned performance skateboarding shoes and action sports lifestyle brand for the last two decades, rolled out a global competition that tapped the unique and creative perspective of its fans. The DC Shoes South East Asia TRASE YOURS Design competition called out to all artists, creators, and designers from each participating country including Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines to submit their original custom design for the new DC Trase shoes, which will feature a vulcanized low profile silhouette and clean upper design –making it perfect for applying almost any artwork.
From all the submissions they will pick the top 20 design from which they will pick the grand winner. The winning design will be featured as part of the DC Shoes 2016 collection, which will be sold exclusively throughout the best DC shoes retailing stores in the SEA Region.
Meanwhile, back here in the Philippines, an art exhibit was held last July 29 at the A Space in Makati to showcase th top design submissions from the country entries. The event was hosted by Basti Atardi of Wolfgang.
There were 10 pieces exhibited with theme revolving around the lifestyle street culture theme . An on-the-spot judging of the works by select panel of media and creative industry pundits was the highlight of the event where one of the winners will be the first-ever awardee of the DC Shoes design competition and Php35,000.00 cash and Php35,000 worth of gift certificates.
The big winner of the #TraseYours day was Judith Ann Tala Nia with her Flock design !
