Concept to Creation Fashion Exhibition

Emerald Art Center is looking for aspiring fashion designers in Oregon to participate in our first Concept to Creation fashion exhibition challenge; “Fashion for Every Body”. This challenge is open to men’s wear, women’s wear, persons with disabilities (wheelchair users, etc), any style, any body-type. This will be an all inclusive show, and will feature designs for every “Body”.

The designer can choose what area of fashion he or she would like to focus. There will be three parts to this exhibit. The first will be the initial sketches; showing the ideas behind the completed piece. Part 2 will feature the swatches of fabric used to create the garment and design changes. Part 3 will be the completed garment. Designers must bring in their own mannequin to display their garment. Only 12 designers will be chosen for this exhibition.  The artists’ reception will feature a fashion show of the garments accepted into the exhibition on Friday, Aug. 10.

Submit Jpeg images of sketches of initial design and at least one image of previous finished design along with artist bio to director@emeraldartcenter.net
