HAVE QUESTIONS?

Once you register online, we’ll send you a confirmation of registration by email. Next, you’ll receive a Competition Application package, including information about your fabric options.  After you submit the application form, you’ll get your competition registration.

You must select the fabrics for your prototype from our fabric selections.
Quantities are limited. For example, for one dress design entry, a maximum of 6 yards of fabric among the selections will be provided.

RUNWAY TO STREET’s first competition is open only to design students.
However, we may add a few selective styles to the web site after the competition is closed. Designers who have great ideas but aren’t currently studying can submit design sketches for our consideration, along with an introductory cover letter. Also, we may expand next season’s competition to additional groups.

Instagram voting gives competition participants a chance to market their designs and receive feedback on them. Pre-order scoring will give you valuable insight into who your customers are and what they really want.
From this pre-judging group, RUNWAY TO STREET’s panel will select 50
winning pieces to produce and sell on our web site.

No. The theme for this season is “a timeless collection.” It’s strictly for ready-to-wear. However, RUNWAY TO STREET is planning to sponsor a holiday season competition. That will be the time to enter your gala/special occasion designs.

No, once your design is selected for production in this competition, it becomes the intellectual property of RUNWAY TO STREET. However, winning products will be identified with your name, so it will always be recognizable as your design.
