Tomorrow may well be the most exciting day of the week ahead. Why? Well, of course, the new issue of your favourite weekly hits newsstands, but Grazia Daily is happy to let another event overtake us in the excitement stakes – just this once! Oh yes, we're super-duper-excited for the launch of Grazia's Fash Factor, our totally unique talent search that takes place at Grazia HQ from 9am tomorrow. And is this the first contestant in line?
As you know, we've already announced that London Fashion Week designers Henry Holland and Jonathan Saunders will be on our illustrious judging panel alongside Grazia editors and some of the most powerful buyers in the fashion industry.

And don't forget, we're looking for RAW talent so there's no need to be shy, folks. If doesn't matter if you've stitched up a frock on your bedroom floor or recently graduated with a fully-polished collection - all entrants are welcome! So what are you waiting for? Show us your Fash Factor!
