If you are an NGO please send us an email at coordination @ wearyourorigins.com and we will send you the application form for the beneficiaries of the program.
First the beneficiaries must fill in the application form that we will send you via email and then to take part in the competition are invited to create a collection inspired by their place of origin. If someone’s country of origin is not Greece, their inspiration will focus on elements of their country’s tradition. On the contrary, if their country of origin is Greece, then their inspiration will focus on the particular elements from the tradition of their homeland. They can choose any point in time you wish, from ancient to contemporary!

Each scoring criterion has a specific weight value. Detailed information about the evaluation process can be found here.
Through this Competition the 30 contestants who will get the highest scores will receive free membership in the “Wear your Origins” Award organized by SOFFA.
The award ( program) will last for four (4) months and participants are being asked to commit to be present and participate actively during these months in order to create their own Capsule Collection as well as to display subsequently and promote their collection in catwalks and other stakeholders.
This depends on the circumstances. The 4-month design award will include both physical and online presence. However because during the award program, the participants will have the opportunity to attend several lectures by Guest Lectures and Mentors from abroad, we prefer these lectures to be held in our space so that there is the possibility of interpretation and explanation after the teacher’s lectures. Classes will be once a week.
Yes, we will be very happy to have in our award any talented person who will contribute with their creativity!
Yes, they can apply for the award.
Of course, all your women beneficiaries who may have a call in sewing, fashion and art are welcomed to apply for the ‘Wear your Origins’ award.
There will be ad hoc translation services based on the needs of our beneficiary women.
