DESIGNER CALL 2022
Strands, A Fiber Fashion Showcase, features fiber art designers who exhibit their handmade crochet and knit fashions and accessories. The purpose of this show is to expose our art form to a wider audience and get people interested in wearing and purchasing crochet and knit fashion and accessories on a regular basis.
In our 5th year, the 2022 show will again be held at the Performance Art Theater at Southwest Arts Center in Atlanta, GA on Sunday, March 20, 2022.
This fashion event includes a phenomenal showcase, handmade Artisan Bazaar, exclusive Buyer’s boutique, entertainment, and fabulous food & beverage options.
Each designer will have 5-6 minutes to showcase their line (minimum of 10 pieces, maximum of 15). Models will be provided. We will be holding in-person model calls in February where you can have the opportunity to select models to use in the show. For out of town designers, this will be held virtually. Local Designers are expected to participate.
Each designer will have the option to freely sell their runway fashions in the Buyer’s Boutique which will take place at the end of the show or in the Artisan Bazaar that runs the duration of the event.
The Artisan Bazaar vendors area will be in the lobby and show area of the venue. The Buyer’s Boutique will be backstage and invite or VIP only.
The Designer fee for this event is $130 (add $40 to participate in the Artisan Bazaar). When your application has been approved, you will be sent a PayPal invoice to submit the Designer Fee. Previous show participants will receive a discount on the Designer Fee.
Deadline for submission is January 21, 2022. Participants will be selected by January 28, 2022. Invoices will go out with approval letters.
Rehearsal will be Friday & Saturday, March 18 & 19, 2022 in the Performance Art Theater.
