Announcement: Canada’s Breakthrough Designers 2015 Jury Panel!

Before welcoming our 2015 edition jury members who will be selecting our 25 finalists this Friday, October 24th at our TÉLIO head office, we owe them a brief introduction. I say brief as we will subsequently present a Q&A for each respective jury member in the upcoming weeks. This way, you will get to know them better!

We’re looking forward to getting to spend a day with these fashion mavens, and we thought it would be fun to give you guys the chance to ask them any questions you may have.

Here’s how you can submit your question to any of our 2015 jury members:

  1. Like our Competition Facebook Page.
  2. Send us a private inbox message in which you will write your question and indicate to whom it is directed to. To read each jury’s bio, click here.
  3. We will then choose one question per jury member and address it to them on Friday October 24th.

We will let you know when your question will be posted on our social network platforms!



Good luck to everyone; we look forward to reading your questions!
