CALL FOR ARTISTS-School of Architecture - Carnegie Mellon University


Assemble's "Rising Runway Show"

Assemble's "Rising Runway Show" will be held on Saturday, May 19th, 2012. The theme is technology. We are looking for two dynamic, wearable designs that work in dialogue with each other and the theme of technology. The two garments must show continuity within the design, whether they are cohesive, intentionally disconnected, and or playing off of one another.

The garment must be classified as at least one of these three categories: fashion, wearable art, or Eco friendly.

Submissions must include an inspiration board and statement describing your idea and final projects.
You will also need to submit sketches of potential final garments or objects that the artist would like to explore, expand upon, and create.

There is an entry fee of $20.

 Please submit applications by March 3, 2012, through email to Diane Meyer.

Please include your name and email address in the message.

Garments must be turned in to Assemble on May 16th or May 17th.

If you have any questions please contact Diane Meyer at (716)725-1639

Submissions should contain three pairs of possible garments/wearable art, although only 2 garments per artist will be created to be sent down the runway.

We want artists to think outside of the box and challenge themselves; therefore, final garments may vary greatly from the preliminary sketches.

Feel free to spread the word!
