Vitaminwater, the fashionable hydrating beverage, is coloring the design world. In a national campaign that highlights the product’s many colors, vitaminwater is encouraging up-and-coming designers to create a t-shirt design, that could be sold alongside exclusive t-shirts created by the well-known CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) fashion designers, including Derek Lam, Vena Cava, and Rag & Bone to name a few.

Not to be left out of the competition, on Wednesday, May 18 from 7-10pm at Denver’s Museum of Contemporary Art, eight local designers will showcase their one  vitaminwater-inspred look and will be judged by style council members Mondo Guerra, Rustin Coburn and Wendy Ledwitz who will award the winning designer with a $1,000 cash prize.

Ten finalists from the national contest will be given the chance to come to new york for Fall Fashion Week where the top t-shirt design will be chosen to complete the collection. The winning designer will also receive a $5,000 grant to help get started on his/her journey to a successful fashion career.

The vitaminwater color collection contest is open to anyone with a passion for fashion, who is 15 years of age or older and thinks they have what it takes to hit it big. Program details can be found at All designers interested in entering will need to submit a completed application, which includes two color sketches of their t-shirt design, a mood board showing inspiration and a short paragraph about themselves by July 15.

Talk about quenching your style thirst.
