The Belcourt Theatre announces a fashion design competition to find Nashville’s most promising designer as part of its second annual nD Festival, a fundraiser that celebrates independent film, fashion and music. Competitors will engage in an application process that includes producing a full look inspired by great American road movies. The winner of the nD Emerging Designer competition will show his or her runway looks alongside two visiting national designers at the nD Festival’s fashion show, slated for Fall 2011 at the Belcourt Theatre. Open to any Nashville-area designer over the age of 21, there is no fee to participate in the competition. The deadline to submit the first round of application materials is Monday, Feb. 28, 2011. Applications and guidelines will be available online at http://www.belcourt.org/ as of Friday, Jan. 28.
An expert panel of judges will select the winner, whom they believe has the talent to represent the future of independent fashion in Nashville. Competition judges include Laura Brown, special events and features director of Harper’s Bazaar magazine and featured judge on Bravo TV’s “The Fashion Show”; and Carrie and Matt Eddmenson, owners of the Nashville-based denim company Imogene + Willie and featured designers in the 2010 nD Festival fashion show.
To join fashion with film, a Nashville independent filmmaker will incorporate the nD Emerging Designer’s winning looks into a short film that will screen during the nD Festival fashion show. The winner will also receive a stipend and other prizes to go toward production of the featured collection and mentoring sessions with nationally known designers Carrie and Matt Eddmenson, and Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin. The nD Festival will take place in late September 2011 (specific dates TBD). Co-chairs for the event are Holly Bryant and Libby Callaway. Approximately 1,000 people attended last year’s nD Festival, which raised more than $30,000 for new audience seating and improvements at the Belcourt Theatre.
