10 Emerging Designers from Around the World
To Be Featured at Olympus Fashion Week

Calling all new fashion designers! UPS and IMG Fashion today announced they are accepting applications worldwide for 10 emerging designers to show their Spring 2007 collections at Olympus Fashion Week in New York City from Sept. 8-15.

The selected designers will show onsite in the UPS Hub, a venue constructed exclusively for the global shipping company in the famed Bryant Park tents. UPS launched the “UPS Delivers Fashion’s Future” initiative in September 2005 by featuring collections by Doo Ri, Project Alabama, Willow and Tomer, among others.

Designers are required to have been in business for at least two years and to have sold a minimum of two collections to a variety of boutiques and department stores. The 10 designers will be selected by a panel composed of key domestic and international fashion editors, retailers and industry professionals. These emerging designers will have their venue rental subsidized by UPS, which includes state-of-the-art lighting, sound and staging and inclusion in all Olympus Fashion Week collateral materials, marketing, public relations and advertising. They also will benefit from special collateral and marketing materials developed specifically by UPS for this initiative.

Designers interested in participating and who meet these requirements should send materials, including look books, videos and sketches, by June 1st to:

IMG Fashion
Attention: UPS Delivers Fashion’s Future
420 West 45th Street
New York, NY 10036

Phone, email and in person inquires will not be accepted and no materials will be returned.
