The resulting design will be presented at a live runway show that will take place the evening of July 15th at Gotham Hall, NYC.
To be considered for participation, interested designers will need to present at an open call that will take place Tuesday, June 17th from 4 PM to 9 PM at the Thompson Hotel in SoHo. Designers will interview with a panel composed of fashion editors, established designers and Supima representatives.
Designers participating in the open call should bring: A sketch of proposed women’s evening wear design; a copy of their design portfolio; and a current CV / Resume.
Selected designers will be provided with ten yards of fabric with which they can create a women’s eveningwear design. The fashions will be shown on professional models at the PREFAB runway event on the evening of Tuesday, July 15th. Selected designers will have their sketches and information featured in a magazine that Supima will publish and distribute to over 10,000 retailers, buyers and fashion industry insiders. Winning designs will also be featured on the Supima website and included in future promotions.
