If you want to design shoes or are just really good at decorating things with studs, get out your Be-Dazzler, because Aldo is holding a contest to find a new collaborator. DIY a high-fashion knock-off or make up something all on your own and submit it at Aldo's website by October 30 to be considered. The winner will get a chance to collaborate on a design for Aldo's F/W 2010 collection to be featured in Teen Vogue. [Aldo, via Nitrolicious]
