Following a successful launch last year, Asia’s online fashion destination is pleased to announce that the Zalora Scholarship has returned for its second year.
Designed to turn passion into profession, the scholarship program will award six tertiary students from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Hong Kong and, for the first time, Taiwan, with a grant and an invaluable industry experience at Zalora offices.
The theme for this year is “Function Vs Fashion: How the Two Coexist in (Major) Trends Over the Decades.”
The fashion-meets-function trend is growing rapidly now, more than ever as wearables flood the market. One prime example is the activewear industry as fitness wear becomes more than just clothes for working out. Applicants are encouraged to think creatively and illustrate theirs views on the subject through compelling means and submit their entry in the form of an essay or infographic.
Winning entries will be selected based on creativity, innovation and relevance to the theme as well as their analytical skills and academic results.
CEO Michele Ferrario said, “As Asia’s online fashion retailer, we’re dedicated to continuously recognise and support the most promising talents in the region who desire for a career in fashion. Zalora Scholarship is an excellent initiative to provide the best and brightest students interested in joining the fashion e-commerce world with the opportunity and platforms to fuel their passion. We believe this will not only help develop and groom the future leaders of this industry but also contribute to the growth of e-commerce in Asia.”
