Could you be Ireland's next top fashion stylist? U Magazine want to hear from you!

Outside Ireland? Skip straight to this post!
Have you always dreamed of a career as a top fashion stylist? Then this could be just the opportunity you're looking for. U Magazine will run a competition over the next seven issues, with a prize package including mentoring and a shoot in the pages of the mag.

Four finalists will be brought in front of a judging panel in August to prove their fashion credentials. The panel includes U Magazine Editor Jen Stevens, Deputy Ed Deanna O'Connor, fashion photographer Daniel Hotfield and Irish stylist Courtney Smith.
The first task involves selecting two trends from the list below, and submitting the shots to umagazine@harmonia.ie with your name, email address and telephone number.
The images must be hi-res (300 dpi), and following the U Fashion ethos. Clothes used should be 60/40 highstreet versus aspirational, vintage, designer or handmade. Submit your two favourite pictures together with a short explanation of what you used and why. Then simply submit them together with your name, email address and telephone number to umagazine@harmonia.ie
The Trends
Pastels: Sweet colours were everywhere on the spring/summer catwalks from DVF to 3.1 Philip Lim.
Sports Luxe: This trend is huge for s/s 2012. Think wearable workout wear with a glamorous edge.
All White: An ever-glamorous trend, total white -  as seen on the catwalks of Preen and Fendi - is the new black for this season.
Floral: The most popular look to be translated from catwalk to highstreet, floral is the key trend for this summer.
Global Print: From Aztec to Africa global prints are everywhere this season. Don’t be afraid to mix your patterns. Eclecticism is key.
Embellishment: Running the gamut from studs to leather detailing adding more to your outfit is a must for the season.

Do you fancy your chances with a competition like this? Good luck to everyone who enters!
