Elite virtual fashion talent comes alive on global competitive runway

Jun '07
Harnessing the expertise, influence and commitment to style and careers in the fashion industry, Nolcha.com, the fashion career network, is proud to announce Nolcha Fashion Week: NYC. Nolcha Fashion Week is taking place on September 5 – September 12 and includes the 'Silhouette Award,' an unprecedented designer competition for emerging talent across the globe.

During Nolcha Fashion Week, Nolcha will support and promote fashion on the runway with seminars and trade networking. They will also be housing the winners of Style Bakery's designer competition 'On the Rise' at a boutique event exhibiting the Spring/Summer collections of the designers involved.

“After our fashion tour of NYC, London, LA and Miami in September 2006 we recognize that there is so much undiscovered fashion talent out there and on limited budgets. People want their creativity and individual innovation to be acknowledged and not compared or in competition with the established,” said Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha.

As part of the 'Silhouette Award,' Nolcha is inviting designers to compete for one of the ten final spots to showcase at a peak time for the fashion industry in New York City. The competition has the support of fashion and design schools nationwide. The selected designers will unveil their collections to an elite and professional audience of press, buyers and fashion lovers from across the globe.

One designer will be chosen to win a cash prize of $5,000, a publicity campaign and collection placement in a NYC and Miami boutique. This event has the support of The Fashion Journal: New York & London, UCE Lifestyle Magazine, Six Degrees Magazine, La Geneve North Magazine and IMT Styles.

“Nolcha is fast becoming a must-stop destination for all things in the world of fashion... a 'House of Fashion,' with many rooms for established and aspiring models, designers, stylists and make-up artists to congregate, show their product and most importantly, network,” stated Don Wilhelm, editor of Talent in Motion.

Established designers will also have runway opportunities for two days as part of Nolcha Fashion Week by applying online to show their collections.
