It's not everyday that you see a football star that not only dominates on the field, but also has a great eye and admiration for fashion. However, Brad Smith seems to want to take over both worlds. Smith, who recently landed a best dressed spot (#14) in Complex Magazine's Top 25 is currently getting his feet wet in the fashion world, and wants someone with a keen eye for design to assist in his vision. Smith is known to wear fine tailored suits that are sleek and very modern. The well structured lines paired with a hint of edginess gives Brad the perfect amount of "traditional meets the here and now". Brad wants to stand out at the upcoming prestigious Mercedes Benz Fashion Week held in New York, and is giving others a chance to sketch a design that he will wear to rub elbows with elite fashion insiders.
The "Design for Brad Smith" competition only requires a sketch, either by hand or digitally, and will allow for the winner to not only win $20,000, but to also be able to attend Fashion Week and spend a day with the football star. The winning design will be worn by Smith on the red carpet during one of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week events. This is a great way for an aspiring fashion designer to get his/her designs noticed by others that are well established in the fashion industry.

The winning design of the full suit (shirt, tie, accessories, vest included) will be selected by Brad Smith as well as a selected fashion panel. Do you have what it takes?
