Models wait backstage before the annual New Arrivals fashion show in Istanbul, Turkey, June 26, 2013. The show is the culmination of a competition for emerging Turkish designers. The winner receives a year of fashion education abroad, a year of English-language classes, and a one-year designer position with a leading brand, among other prizes. The competition is one of the ways Turkey is investing in the next generation of fashion designers. Turkey is making a name in the fashion world as a source of ideas and art, where it was traditionally primarily a clothing and textile manufacturer.
