The 2019 Fashion Colorworks competition

Soutěž Fashion Colorworks 2019

The winners of the tenth year of the international Fashion Colorworks creative competition have been announced.

Bead lovers around the world create wonderful pieces of jewellery and accessories and they often choose beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand for their creative work.

Since 2010, we have been able to admire the most amazing creations gathered together at the My Lovely Beads website thanks to the Fashion Colorworks competition.

According to the competition's rules, every participant has the option of choosing one of three offered combinations of colors which are trending for the current fashion season. These colors are chosen according to the trend collections announced by the Pantone Color Institute, which is an internationally renowned expert and provider of color systems.

The competition is open to professional and amateur creators from all around the world. The entries must be original pieces made by the participants, but it is also possible to present collective work.
