Rivalation Design Competition

Rivalation is a creative powerhouse that organizes international academic competitions for college students – motivating artistic genius while simultaneously complementing their education. Their latest design competition is quite a challenge – students are asked to design an ensemble for Lady Gaga. And not just any ensemble, one that she can wear to perform at the funeral of a lifelong hero. Talk about pressure. Oh – and – it will be televised.

According to the Rivalation design guidelines: “Gaga wants to be respectful, but still creative. She wants to honor her hero by making a fashion statement her hero would be proud of.” The rest is up to you. Most of all, they encourage students to embrace Gaga’s mantra – be creative and think outside the box. Nothing is off limits.
