Following are notices of three opportunities I intended to post last week. Until I finish decompressing from my most recent class (writing debriefings is so helpful!) and get back to posting normally tomorrow, this is what I have for you.
Beau Grabner, producer for the Sundance Channel’s show All on the Line writes to announce casting for the second season. I haven’t seen the show but some people like it. I went to the site and saw two F-I alums. Yay us! Mr. Grabner says:
Joe Zee is looking for New York based fashion designers to work with on the second season of the Sundance Channel’s “All On The Line”. Joe will work one on on with each designers and help them prepare for a buyer meeting that he has arranged. If you are in the New York area and would like to work with Joe Zee please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a forum member, Mr. Grabner requests that you contact him using the contact information and email address listed here rather than the one posted above.
Another opportunity is Fashion on the Grand (see that link for official rules and registration form). Although this design competition is held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the contest is open to US residents over the age of 18. Submissions consist of a sketch and a 100 word statement. The event is slated for August 27 with a grand prize of $5,000 and related products. Break a leg.
Kate with Jens Casting (and Kim) sends word of an opportunity to win a $10,000 prize package for a new fashion competition show that will be filmed in NYC. Jen says:
There is a limited time commitment (approximately 2 days), and designers will not have to relocate to live with other participants. This is an amazing opportunity for fashion designers to participate in a short competition that will give them national exposure and the chance to win a $10K prize package.
Read the flyer (pdf) for all the details.
Switching gears, Forever 21 is suing a blogger. Good grief. F21 has been sued for copyright infringement no less than 51 times, is single-handedly responsible for the Garment Manufacturer’s License requirement in the state of California due to their rampant abuses but now they’re getting bent out of shape over a bit of satire? Don’t know your take but it is possible that the WTForever 21 blog is more likely to drive customers to Forever 21 than not but you’re the better judge of it. Rumor has it that F21 knocked off one of most loyal members last week so I’m even less favorably disposed toward the company than ever. As per the latter, I’ll keep you posted if permitted to do so.
See you lovelies tomorrow!
