The theme for this year’s show is Sustainability. Priority will be given to work that links to the theme. As part of the application process we would like a brief design statement that explains your garments’ link to the sustainability theme. 

Submissions are due by Jan. 3, 2020. The entry fee for each garment submitted is $10 (current Brenau University students receive a 50 percent discount). If you are interested in participating, contact Polly Evans-Thomas at pevans-thomas1@brenau.edu and we will provide you with the registration information. 

Notifications for selection will be sent out via email on Jan. 24, 2020. If your work is selected for inclusion in the show, you will be expected to provide a model for your design(s) for the runway. If you are unable to find a model or your would prefer a stationary display, your garment will be displayed in Pearce Auditorium on a dress form. We will contact you with more information about the rehearsal schedule or setting up an appointment to dress the form for display after notifications are sent out. 

The fashion show is 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 18, in Pearce Auditorium. Admission is free and everyone is invited to attend. If your work is selected, you will receive reserved seating for you and one other person during the show. For more information, contact Polly Evans-Thomas at pevans-thomas1@brenau.edu.
