Help Bring TVÁŘ Runway to Life!
Dear Valued Partner,
I don't even know where to begin. My name is FAB, I'm a wardrobe stylist based in Washington, D.C. with LA dreams. I have been hypothetically planning this game-changing runway competition for stylists, called the TVÁŘ | Stylist Runway Competition (pronounced VOSH) in my head and on paper for about 3 years now. Just like a lot of my fashion peers with great ideas, I have been hesitant to take a leap of faith to bring my vision to fruition.
The reason that this show is imperative is that there are so many emerging stylists that are overlooked or underground and many misunderstandings about the role of a stylist. Outside of the fashion industry or wealthy population, people misconstrue the need for a stylist. Due to this fact, many of these creatives do not see a way to excel at their crafts and get stuck working on their passion for free forever and using private sector or regular jobs to sustain themselves. There are so many amazingly talented, individuals out there hungry for an opportunity to show what they can do to get their big break. That is why the TVÁŘ | Stylist Runway Competition was born.
ABOUT THE SHOW
During the competition, stylists will showcase a 5-piece mini collection they've created by pulling garments from our approved list of designers. However, their collections will be judged based on the show's theme for that year. The industry leaders that will make up our judges panel will select the best collection. In tandem, the judges will also be watching the models as they work the runway and choose the top 10 to compete in the show's closing walk-off competition called The Strut. VIP guests and attendees will have the opportunity to participate in voting for their favorite stylist, which the judges will take into consideration during deliberation.
OBJECTIVE 10 emerging stylists create mini collections using approved emerging designers, models, and beauty teams. Selected models will also be chosen to participate in The Strut.
THE CATCH Collections will be based on the show’s theme for that year and judged by a panel of fashion & style industry leaders.
-STYLIST: One overall winner and one runner-up.
-MODEL: One winner.
-PRIZES: 12 career-defining awards to be announced.
I have dreams of making this event scale to the caliber of New York Fashion Week and its global franchise in order to give creative talents the stage, lights, and cameras they deserve in order to showcase what they have to offer to the world. Annually, the show will select a new beneficiary, starting with the National Kidney Fund. I selected them first because, on February 6, 2014, I was honored to be able to donate my kidney to my mother in order to save her life. Without the financial assistance they provided to me during that leave from my job, I would have been in a serious bind. This is just my way of saying thank you for helping me help my mother. I plan to have my mom come up on stage and present the NKF representative with an item for recognition.
The show will also have an amazing staff working the event that will have their own Gratitude Ball a week prior to say thank you for the great job that I know they will do. I know this isn't a sad story of unfortunate events, however, the part of me that realized my passion for creative arts and ultimately styling is based on helping others. Styling for me is the way I help my clients look their best and feel even better.
The funds raised from your donations will be used for a stellar marketing team, a venue worthy of this event, the amazing event production and surprises we have in store for our event attendees, and last, but not least, the career-changing prizes/awards the stylist + model winners will receive.
Helping these stylists bring their creativity to a stage in front of celebrities, PR, VIPs, etc would be a dream come true! Thank you.
In Style We Trust,
FAB | Show Producer
