Nashville Fashion Week seeks emerging designers to spotlight during the 2018 event. Applicants must demonstrate creativity, quality and a broad appeal to a wide range of consumers. If chosen, the emerging designer will have the opportunity to showcase their collection during Nashville Fashion Week 2018. All emerging 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 November 13, 2017. Emerging Designers will be notified by the end of the year and announced to the public in February at an official Nashville Fashion Week event. You can apply online at NashvilleFashionWeek.com.
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
- Must be available to show between April 3-7, 2018.
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.
