The Fashion Prize was born out of a collaboration between the Agora Borealis, a local artist marketplace and art gallery, and the nationally recognized Louisiana Film Prize.
The Fashion Project/Fashion Prize is our newest addition - comprised of a year long, design competition in Northwest Louisiana and culminating during Prize Fest in October.
Designers are handpicked and curated to produce a collection of 10 to 15 looks from initial conception and design to final runway. Designers are provided with a series of workshops, professional critiques, and peer support.
During the Fashion Project preliminaries, each spring, these designers will compete in a runway show in front of judges and a live audience to determine which three designers will move on to compete in that year's Fashion Prize.
Finalists will have the opportunity to have their collections walk the runway and compete for the Grand Prize!
