RUNWAY DESIGNERS

Fashion X Houston is seeking apparel designers to show runway collections during events on October 5 and 6, 2018 (NOTE: October 4 is reserved for River Oaks District tenants). Both emerging designers and established labels are invited to apply.

Designers may show any season, but we recommend showing product that is for Fall 2018 (immediates) or Spring 2019 (many designers split their show between seasons). Fashion X Houston markets to buyers and media as well as directly to the end consumer, so looks that are readily available are useful.

Fashion X Houston will be selecting the following runway designers:

  • STARS: Established celebrity designers and/or labels that have significant brand exposure. Each designer is expected to show 12 – 20 looks.
  • 713: Apparel designers based in or with significant roots in the Houston market. Each designer is expected to show 12 – 20 looks.
  • DISCOVER: Emerging apparel designers that are NOT from the Houston market. Each designer is expected to show 12 – 20 looks.
  • CAPSULE: Emerging apparel designers that are based anywhere in Texas. Each designer will be asked to show 3 looks. CAPSULE is meant for very small designers likely just starting out or with very limited budgets.

    Please read the information below carefully and then apply for the appropriate runway shows.

  • APPLICATION PROCESS:

    Applications to participate in Fashion X Houston are due by August 10, 2018 or until all spots have been filled. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received, so it is beneficial to complete your application early. There are no fees to apply.

    The FXH Advisory Board will review each application and provide each brand with a yes, no or waitlist answer. Those that receive a yes answer will be billed for participation. All fees are due no later than August 15, 2018. Accepted designers will be assigned to a night based on designer mix and most obvious brands showing together.

    PARTICIPATION FEES:

    Upon approval by the board, you will be sent a contract to be executed by both parties. Once under contract, you may not be released for any reason and you will be billed for the appropriate participation fees. The fee may be split into multiple payments but final fees are due by August 15, 2018.

    NOTE: Your contract is due on receipt. If you hesitate to sign your contract, your spot may be given to another designer without notice.
