Let’s Get Freaky! A Call For October Submissions
October is the month that all the proverbial freaks come out of the closet to partaaay! Yes, Halloween is rearing it’s monstrous head again (in a fun way!) and all the good, the bad and the ugly come together to celebrate.
Halloween is the time when the lines between normal and “weird” become blurred and often the more outré one’s outfit the more likely they are to be embraced and possibly revered. In the spirit of this haunted holiday (and the fact that the fashion crowd loves a good costume party), we invite you to explore the fringes of your imagination and push the envelope on concepts to come up with something truly “spooktacular”!
Play with the avant-garde, utilize interesting sculptural and conceptual styling, take beauty to the extreme, experiment with unconventional locations, challenge conventional model poses and push artful ideas to new heights. Now, not every submission must be darkly ghoulish, a clever take on the lighter side of life is also welcome. As much as we like tricks, we love treats as well!
So go ahead, get your freak on!
