For those of you that are trying to break into the world of design in either fashion or graphic I have contest for you. The Philadelphia Collection launched its 2nd annual T-shirt Design contest (Entry Deadline is July 8th at Midnight) as one of its kick off events for the style events that will be taking place in Philadelphia through September.
