Scholarship Program

Supporting tomorrow’s fashion design and costume professionals, today

At Blossom Costumes, we believe in the talent our fashion design industry has to offer within Australia. We also know the future of our industry relies on people like you. People who strive to achieve great things in fashion and choose to inspire through their design and creative arts.

Every year, we support students who demonstrate the skills and attributes to thrive in Fashion & Costume Design. We’re contributing $1,500 towards to help cover course costs, so you can focus on your studies and gain the experience you need to excel. It can also be used to purchase relevant textbooks, research materials and technical equipment.

The Blossom Costumes Scholarship Program provides $1,500 for a selected student each year.
