TDC spotlights growth of Orleans fashion industry
Jan '12
Fashion Week New Orleans (FW NOLA) produces a series of runway shows featuring local designers and retailers. Incorporated into the five-day event, scheduled for March 21-25, is a Top Design Competition (TDC), in which 10 designers will showcase their collections to a panel of judges in hopes of winning a prize package including 90 days of in-store presence at a local retail boutique and many other great prizes! NOLA hopes to receive as many applications as possible to increase awareness of the recent growth of the local fashion industry and the FW NOLA TDC.

The application process is open until Jan. 15, 2012.

Inspired by Fashion Week New York and Louisiana's richly diverse culture, FW NOLA's goal is to showcase the talents and collections of established and emerging fashion designers, brand houses, boutiques and retailers in a series of runway shows, fashion events & exhibitions.

New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are recognized globally for the authentic cuisine, musical talent, budding film and celebrity presence & distinctive culture. It is only fitting that the unique talents of fashion designers, boutique owners, make-up artists, hair stylists, models, and fashion enthusiasts are included in the region's repertoire of artistic talent.

In the last five years, regional fashion weeks have formed in places such as Charleston, Portland, St. Louis and Austin. Fashion Weeks in these markets have positively impacted their local economies, set new standards in their fashion communities, and established each city as a top destination for fashion lovers and professionals.

FW NOLA's task is to present a consumer driven showcase of prêt-a-porter fashion by local retailers and boutiques, while also giving emerging, established, and renowned regional fashion designers a platform to display their current collection. Committed to the local community, FW NOLA's includes NO/AIDS Task Force, Dress for Success, & The Fashion Institute of New Orleans as charitable recipients.
