Call for Designers

Right Brain is seeking designers for SHIFT!

Please join us at SHIFT: An experiment in fashion design, our annual celebration of equitable education, creativity in the classroom, and sustainable fashion benefiting The Right Brain Initiative.

Whether participants are novice creators or seasoned taste-makers, in our second annual runway show we invite both rookies and established designers/design teams alike to debut runway garments made from recycled materials and found objects. Those aspiring to join in the fun are asked to submit an application with final design concepts by June 30, 2018. From there, the SHIFT selection committee will curate the garments down to a selected cadre of designers. Submit your concepts early to increase your chances of participation!

Want to submit a garment? Contest entry is free and is open to all ages!

You can download the fillable PDF application here
