The entry period for the 5th season of our fully-crowdsourced fashion show, VFILES MADE FASHION, begins today! Through July 24th, the best young creatives around the world — designers, stylists, makeup artists, photographers, hair stylists, and models — can create a profile, or add to their existing profile, and upload their work to www.vfiles.com for the chance to showcase on fashion’s most energetic stage. The winners will be featured in the VFILES MADE FASHION show during New York Fashion Week on September 9th, 2015.
The VFILES editorial team, as well as a group of prestigious mentors (previous mentors include stylist Mel Ottenberg, legendary Fashion Editor Candy Pratts Price, Calvin Klein Collection Menswear Designer Italo Zucchelli, W Magazine Digital Director Dirk Standen and more), will review each submission and select the winning designers, a stylist, a makeup artist, a hair stylist, a photographer, and models (male and female). Previous winners of VMF include DI$COUNT UNIVER$E, Andrea Jiapei Li, ASSK, Hyein Seo, Melitta Baumeister, Gypsy Sport, SAM MC LONDON, and more!
In addition to participating in our VFILES MADE FASHION show, the selected designers are eligible to be a part of the VFILES THIRD FLOOR Showroom, our PR and brand incubator mentoring designers through every aspect of the fashion industry, and which currently showcases collections from MadeMe, Lucid FC, Julia Seemann, DI$COUNT UNIVER$E, VFILES SPORT PLUS+, Andrea Jiapei Li, ASSK, Sam MC London, and KYE.
