Fashion Week New Orleans (FWNOLA) seeks designers to compete in its third annual Top Design Competition, which takes place in conjunction with the spring fashion shows March 20-24, 2013. The competition exposes designers to the city's fashion professionals, retailers and aficionados.
The 10 designers selected will compete for a career-launching prize package by showing their collections on the runway before a panel of judges. Last year's package included a Brother sewing machine, a manufacturing package from NOLA Sewn, store presence in Vernon, an editorial spread in Amelie G magazine, and a featured spot in FWNOLA 2013.
Southern designers may submit an application now through December 15, 2012. Applications are online at
