    Hi,

    I would like to enter the competition however, you say on there that
    “In the event that the garment does not receive bids, Zenzele Consignment reserves the right to sell item either in our online or retail store.” If you sell the garment, does the designer get compensated for their work and some recognition? since they put time and energy into designing and making the garment.

    Thank you!

      Hello Jamila,

      Thank you for the question. We are hoping designers would allow us to use their garments to help us raise the resources necessary to open our store location in August 2015. We understand, however, the time and effort that goes into creating something beautiful which is why we offer as a $100 prize to our winner along with a feature. For designers who do not win via auction we plan to highlight your work on our website and social media which includes our Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and our email list. I hope this addresses your concern and that you will still consider entering the competition.
