Streethouse Design a Shoe Competition: and the winner is?
The Streethouse Design a Shoe Competition is a shoe design competition for Namibians, sponsored by Streethouse Clothing and Student Lounge (Univ of Namibia). It was launched early last year and aimed at providing a platform for Namibian designers and the youth to express their talents within the clothing industry. The competition has managed to draw in more than a thousand entries from different backgrounds across Namibia. 20 finalists each received N$1000. The final 6 received N$2000 each and a chance to win the Grand Prize. All finalists also received a pair of their signature sneaker. The sneakers are being sold for N$599 and are available in Streethouse stores. The overall winner will receive N$50 000 plus 15% of sales of his/her sneakers, with the other 5 finalists receiving only the 15% commission on their sneaker sales.
