Rules and Guidelines for Participation
You may submit 1-3 sketches or photographs of original looks to be included in the show. We will accept submissions on a rolling basis starting Feb. 5. Submissions will close on Mar. 4.
If accepted, you will need to construct your looks and have them completed by April 5 (dress rehearsal).
There is no cost to show at the event. The event is free to attend.
The event will be “performance art” style, rather than “runway style”.
BYOM: Bring Your Own Model. If you are accepted and create a look for the show, you will be required to provide your own model for each look. No experience necessary, diversity and body positivity encouraged. Models should provide their own shoes, or you may provide shoes to coordinate with your look. We will facilitate hair and makeup for models.
