Competition Details: Have you ever wanted to design the costumes for a play? Wanted the opportunity to bring an original script to life with your vision to costume the characters for the director, producer and playwright? Here is your chance!
Athena Project is seeking initial fashion designs inspired by the message: “VOICES of WOMEN ARTISTS.” Designs can be clothing or accessory items and sketches on 8.5 x 11 paper are all that’s required by August 10, 2012.
Out of the initial sketch submissions, six artists will be selected as semi-finalists. These six will be interviewed and asked to bring in at least 3 samples of a finished design product along with their portfolio at that time.
One designer will be selected as the winner, and will be given both a mentorship and studio space to develop their Athena design for a special showcase at Colorado Fashion Week, Fall of 2012. The designer will also consult on costume designs for the winning play of Athena Project’s Plays In Progress Series, which will be presented in March 2013 at the Athena Project Festival at the Aurora Fox Theatre.
