I think this is a pretty fun one. The closing date is quite soon however, the 14th of September, and it's really geared towards fabric designers more than fashion designers. I thought I'd post it anyway incase anyone is a textile/print designer and likes the sound of it:
"IF you live in London you will sit on them (once a week if you are lucky), they are sometimes garish, often dishevelled and over 3.5 million people see them every day - and now the seats on the London Underground are on the receiving end of a fashionable makeover.
For over 100 years the tube network has transported travellers across the capital, and artists and designers through the ages have created the print design for the seating fabric, or "moquette" seen by every passenger. Now Transport For London has launched a competition, for professional and non-professional designers, to create the next fabric.
"I'm really looking forward to seeing the entries people send in," Saskia Boersma, TFL brand licensing manager, said. "Design has always played an important role for London Underground and the new seating fabric will continue this tradition of high quality design."
The design brief, which remains very much the same as it did in 1930, emphasises that the design's colours should respond well to both natural and artificial light, with a pattern which takes account of wear and tear. The winning design will launch on the Piccadilly line in 2012 and will then be adopted across the London Underground system.
The competition deadline is 5pm Monday 14 September 2009. Participants must be 18 years or over. To download the brief and terms and conditions, please visit
