Are you an aspiring fashion designer? Registration is now open for a nationwide fashion show and design competition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan called Fashion on the Grand. Fashion designers from across the country are invited to submit their avant-garde sketches for a chance to be one of 40 designers chosen to compete at the August 27 event for a grand prize of $5,000, dress form courtesy of PGM, prize basket and cover story with a local magazine. 2nd and 3rd prize winners will receive $500 and $250 respectively, a prize basket and a dress form. Designer submissions will be accepted through July 1, 2011 and the 40 designers that will compete at Fashion on the Grand will be announced July 11, 2011. This event is the sequel to last year's Runway on Monroe event, which I attended. I'm excited to see what this year's event has in store! If you're interested, head over to their website or like them on Facebook! Hope to see you there! If you plan on coming just to view the show, let me know too!
