About Zalora
ZALORA is an online fashion retailer that believes in making fashion accessible. It is the core of our business – we bring high-street labels to Asia in a convenient way. Secretly, we are tech geeks who love numbers and codes as much as affordable fast-fashion. Our passion for all things sartorial and digital, coupled with our dedication to our customers, define everything that we do. ZALORA Scholars will get the opportunity to gain valuable insights from the e-commerce industry.
Function VS Fashion
The question for this year is “Function Vs Fashion: How the Two Coexist in (Major) Trends Over the Decades”.
We have seen fashion trends that arise because of practicality. For instance, printed compression leggings are now a major feature in Athleisure. That being said, we have also witnessed fashion for fashion’s sake like mood rings.
Here at ZALORA, we appreciate the interaction between function and fashion in design. Send us your compelling insights based on the above theme by 31 July 2016 and you might be the next ZALORA Scholar!
Have any questions that need answering? Check out the F.A.Q page, or email us at The 2015 theme was “The Science of Fashion”. Curious about the 2015 ZALORA Scholar Winner? Check out their entry!
