THE COLLECTIVE 2019

When:

February 19, 2019

Now in its 3rd year, The Collective is not just another student fashion show… it has become a hotly-anticipated competition amongst a collective group of talented new design voices from the top New York fashion schools: FIT, Pratt, Parsons, SVA, Cornell University, or Marist University.

Last year’s The Collective runway featured emerging student designers from FIT, Parsons & Pratt
 

The Collective is an exclusive opportunity for up to 30 emerging designers to show your work both on the runway and online and launch your career:

●      Up to 30 spots in the runway show will be reserved for talented new fashion designers (3-5 finished looks are required)

●      Unique opportunity to show your work and receive direct mentoring consultations from industry leaders and professionals

●      As semi-finalists, the designers will be competing for TWO opportunities to be rewarded:

The Collective Show Winner will be selected by a jury of fashion industry insiders, while the Fan Favorite Winner will be chosen based on the social media engagement of their collection, which will be posted on @Designowstudio IG. Both winners will receive cash prizes, a feature on the Designow Blog designow.com and on @designowstudio (IG) and more…

Tirzah Rasys - The Collective 2018 show winner took her passion for knitwear innovation to the next level after being offered a position as the Assistant Knitwear Designer at apparel company, NYC Alliance. She’s also an ambassador for The Collective speaking at her alma mater, the Fashion Institute of Technology on the valuable lessons she learned from this experience and offering insight on how to transition design passion into a career.

Joshua Mudgett - Two-time The Collective contestant Joshua Mudgett continues to find acclaim after producing a collection with Designow inspired by Japanese cyberpunk. His exploration of AI and science-based design has grabbed the attention of the fashion world becoming an CFDA Honorate, articles in magazines including Elle and Yoko, and an invitation to speak at the Techonomy 2018 Conference.

We first met Joshua at The Collective in 2017 where he showed a line that was just beginning to explore textiles and technology
