Peroni Nastro Azzurro has always enjoyed a very close relationship with Italian fashion, through the shared values of authenticity, craftsmanship and attention to detail. Peroni has partnered Italian fashion designer Marco de Vincenzo, for a new and exciting collaboration: The Peroni Moda Awards.
The Peroni Moda Awards seek to discover talented and aspiring designers in the Republic of Ireland. The challenge is to create a fashion look that celebrates the iconic Peroni Nastro Azzurro blue ribbon.
Ten finalists will be chosen and asked to create and then display their entry at The Peroni Moda Awards Fashion Show that will take place in Dublin in October 2012.
An experience of a lifetime: a trip to Milan, Italy for 2 people and the opportunity to work with Marco de Vincenzo behind the scenes of his catwalk show at Milan Fashion Week in February 2013. The winner will also be featured in 2 full spreads in IMAGE magazine and in Tatler Man.
Entries must be designs of a complete outfit, for either a man or a woman, and must reflect the values at the heart of Peroni Nastro Azzurro: passion, craftsmanship, quality, timeless style, attention to detail and exemplify or be inspired by the Peroni Blue Ribbon.
How to enter
The promotion is open to ROI residents aged 25 or over. Entrants should create their designs for a complete fashion look, as per the above design brief, then scan their sketches, designs or images and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org with Peroni Moda Awards and your surname in the subject heading. Alternatively post to Peroni Moda Awards, 17a Gilford Road, Sandymount, D 4.
Your entry should include:

- a brief description (maximum 300 words) to explain the inspiration and/or the process behind your design: how it exemplifies the values that Peroni Nastro Azzurro holds in such high esteem.
Remember, you must create a full look and, if chosen as one of the ten finalists, you will be asked to produce a real-life prototype of the full look that can be worn in the catwalk show.
