Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf has once again confirmed Marc Jacobs to serve as sponsor of the junior award „Designer for Tomorrow by Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf“ in 2012.

”The fashion talent award DfT is an internationally recognized catwalk for the creative talent. … Together with P&C, Marc Jacobs is now offering the next generation of designers another excellent opportunity to benefit from its creativity and expertise and to develop themselves further based on its personal feedback,“ said Kerstin Pooth of Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf.

After the selection of the Top 30, Marc Jacobs and the jury will nominate five finalists that will show their collections at the Berlin Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in July. The New York-based designer will be present in Berlin in the time leading up to the award show in order to support the contestants.

“The aim of the award has convinced me to continue to support the ‘Designer for Tomorrow’ award. It is an authentic award and the focus is on the designer”, stated Marc Jacobs.
