QT Fashion Week and Awards is proud to announce White Sands Swimwear as the sponsor for “Best Up and Coming Swimwear Designer 2013”.

The winner of the award will be awarded $2000 cash to invest back into their swimwear label.

Owner of White Sands Swimwear, Leah Madden, knows how difficult the swimwear industry is to break into so is happy to help emerging swimwear designers.

“I’m excited to be part of the QTFWA as it is a great opportunity for my fans and customers to preview the new collection.” Leah says.

Celebrities such as Elle Macpherson, Cindy Crawford, Selena Gomez and Whitney Port have been seen in White Sands Swimwear, making it a highly regarded name in the fashion industry.

Leah will showcase her S/S 2013 collection at QTFWA alongside other headlining designers including Marlies Dekkers, Talulah, Lisa Brown and Nicola Finetti after returning from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Sydney only a couple of weeks earlier.

QTFWA will be held from April 22-28 at the vibrant QT Hotel Gold Coast in the heart of Surfers Paradise.

Tickets can be purchased from www.fashionweekandawards.com.au
