Designers: Two Ways to Show Off

Hey designers (read with mental version of Jonathan Adler’s voice in Top Design), looking for ways to show off? Here are two new events looking for independent fashion designers right now:

– University of Pacific in Stockton, CA seeks submission for their upcoming exhibition, “Caps and Couture: Fashion and the Urban Landscape,” running from Oct. 6 – Nov. 7, 2008. The runway show is scheduled for Oct. 18th at 9 pm. They seek design submissions of avant-garde clothing inspired by city life.  Please send images to Bett Schumacher bschumacher1 (at) pacific (dot) edu as soon as possible for review.

– Project Inform’s An Evening of Hope: A Night of Lifesaving Fashion has extended the deadline for participating desiers. Join Project Runway’s Jack Mackenroth, Catherine Jane, Josie Adele of Fluidance and others in creating a “condom couture” piece for this gala event’s runway show. The new deadline is Oct. 1. So buy some condoms and get creative.
