VFiles has always taken an innovative approach to its runway shows by giving emerging designers the chance to show at New York Fashion Week, and unearthing talented brands in the process. With Fall 2015 runway shows drawing near, the online fashion community is taking its crowdsourcing approach a step further and casting the entire runway show—that means designers, stylists, photographers, hairstylists, makeup artists, and models—through its website.
The winners will be selected by VFiles' editorial staff, and a panel of industry insiders, including Calvin Klein men’s creative director Italo Zucchelli, Vogue editor-at-large Candy Pratts Price, stylists Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele and Mel Ottenberg, who works with Rihanna, and Style.com editor-in-chief Dirk Standen. All of the judges will also serve as mentors to those selected.
VFiles has previously helped other brands, such as Gypsy Sport, Steven Tai, Sam Mc, Melitta Baumeister, and ASSK, get their start through this very same process.
The submission process runs until Dec. 8, and winners will be announced on Dec. 15. Submit here to bring your talents to VFiles New York Fashion week show taking place Feb. 11, 2015.
