Fashion Week NOLA seeks designers for Third Annual Top Design Competition

Written by  Fashion Week New Orleans
Getting noticed as a fashion designer is no easy feat. Most start creating in the privacy of their home, often designing for friends and family and never getting the opportunity to showcase their talent on a runway in front of an audience of fashion industry professionals and enthusiast.
 
Fashion Week New Orleans (FWNOLA) has recognized and filled this void by introducing what has now become its signature event, the Top Design Competition (TDC). The TDC has been a highlight of FWNOLA since its inaugural event in 2011.
“We recognize that there is a significant number of emerging designers in the southern region that are not getting the exposure they deserve. Our TDC gives these talented individuals a platform to showcase their collection in front of an audience of buyers, media, and fashion professionals. This exposure can be priceless in helping kick-start an emerging designer’s career. FWNOLA has also been instrumental as a springboard for careers in fashion, including that of models, makeup artists, and hairstylists,” said Tracee Dundas, FWNOLA Creative Director.
 
FWNOLA produces a series of runway shows featuring local designers and retailers. Incorporated into the five-day event, scheduled for March 20-24, 2013, is the TDC in which 10 designers showcase their collections to a panel of judges to win a career-launching prize package.
 
TDC 2012 winner Stephanie Young caught Dundas' eye when she was invited to be one of the judges for LSU’s annual year end fashion show. Seeing Young’s potential, Dundas encouraged her to submit an application for FWNOLA’s 2012 TDC. Her prize package included her collection carried by Vernon Clothing, a Brother sewing machine compliments of AllBrands.com, a manufacturing package from NOLA Sewn, an editorial fashion spread in Amelie G magazine, a professional hi-quality photo shoot of her collection from John Charles Photographer, a Featured Designer placement at FWNOLA 2013, and more.

Applicants for 2013's Top Design Competition must apply by December 15, 2012.
