Artwear in Motion

Deadline: April 2, 2007 @ 4:00 p.m. (RECEIVE)

Artwear in Motion
October 13-20, 2007

Now in its eleventh year, Artwear in Motion showcases wearable art—both functional and purely metaphoric—in a runway show and boutique setting.

Artists and fashion designers who both design and produce original work are eligible to apply.

Entries will be juried by Laurie Schafer


Artists over the age of 18 may submit five slides (or electronic images) of 3-5 representative garments for jury consideration. Accessories without garments are not eligible.

All work should be of original concept and executed by the artist. Artists may apply together only if each garment submitted is truly collaborative and the nature of the collaboration is indicated on the application form.


There will be cash and purchase awards made for excellence in design, execution and concept. Winners will be announced at the runway show.

All garments exhibited must be for sale. The Textile Center will retain a 40 percent commission on all sales made directly from the show. The Textile Center also asks a 20 percent commission on sales that result from direct referrals.

Garments will be for sale immediately following the runway show on October 13. An artist boutique will also be held before and after the runway show and is open to all accepted artists; participation is optional.

APPLICATION is available for download here.

The entry fee is $25.00.
