We received a record number of entries to our New York Fashion Week Internship Contest this season, making it especially difficult to choose our eight finalists — but choose we did.
Next, each finalist was given one week to come up with a video response to the following scenario:
“Imagine you are an emerging fashion designer preparing your first collection for New York Fashion Week. What is the name you have chosen for your collection, and why? Where did you get the inspiration for your collection? Pick a key item from your closet or elsewhere that would best represent what we will see in your collection.”
Now it’s your turn to vote for your favorite candidate. Watch the videos, then vote at the bottom of this page. The four finalists with the most votes are coming with us to New York Fashion Week!
