APPLICATIONS FOR NASHVILLE FASHION WEEK 2019 EMERGING DESIGNERS AND THE 2018 NASHVILLE FASHION FOWARD FUND AWARD ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED
ARE YOU READY FOR THE RUNWAY?
Nashville Fashion Week is on the search for emerging designers to spotlight during our April 2019 event. Applicants must demonstrate creativity, quality and a broad appeal to a wide range of consumers. Select designers will have the opportunity to showcase their collection during Nashville Fashion Week 2019. All designers interested in showing their collections are encouraged to submit their application for review.
The deadline to submit emerging designer applications is 11:59 p.m. CST on Sunday, November 25. Emerging Designers will be notified in December and announced at an official Nashville Fashion Week event early next year.
Emerging Designer Criteria:
All emerging designers are encouraged to apply, but preference will be given to those that live in or have connections to Nashville and/or Middle Tennessee
Each collection must be original designs, debuting at Nashville Fashion Week
PLEASE NOTE: Nashville Fashion Week does not charge a submission fee to apply or participate. Designers selected are responsible for their own travel and related expenses, and for transporting their collection to Nashville — as well as all costs associated with designing/creating their looks, including shoes, accessories and music for their runway show. No age restrictions or specific experience is required. However, those under 18 will need parent/guardian permission to apply.
