New for 2020: Because design spots have become increasingly competitive, EFEC has created a new designer application process. We ask all interested designers to please submit a completed online application including materials, concept, construction thoughts, and sketches or photos to demonstrate design ideas. An unlimited number of applications will be accepted until Dec. 1, 2019. Designers will be notified by Dec. 16 if their design will make the runway competition. Please note: there is a $25 tax-deductible application fee. Selected designs will receive FREE designer entry.

The EVENT: This unconventional fashion event challenges amateur designers to create unique garments out of anything but fabric and send them down a runway to be critiqued by expert judges. The challenge is to raise funds for E•ƒ(ec). The approach is avant-garde and FUN.
