We are looking for creative, adventurous, fashion-forward individuals who are comfortable with working in time constraints, writing about their projects, and being photographed in their garments.
For most challenges you will only have one week to complete your project.
Due to the limited amount of time for each project, we do not expect you to order all of your fabric online as it might not get to you in time. But this is a great way to use up some of your stash!
Even if you are not selected, you can still join us for the fun!
Are you as excited as we are?!
