Greenville Fashion Week (GFW) seeks and supports up-and-coming fashion designers for our Emerging Designer Competition (EDC). Our mission is to give aspiring fashion designers the opportunity and platform to showcase their designs on a professional runway and to share ideas with industry professionals.


Emerging Fashion Designers must submit an online application.  Semifinalists will be selected by a panel of fashion industry experts to show a five piece collection at Greenville Fashion Week in April.  The selected designers will present their looks  from the collection to a Fashion Panel of judges prior to showing their collection of five complete looks on the runway.  GFW Emerging Fashion Designers will also have the opportunity to compete for the title of Elite Emerging Fashion Designer.
