Austin Fashion Week is seeking apparel designers to show runway collections during the Runways & Gallery events on April 6-7, 2018.
The application on this page is for designers that have had an active label for more than 3 years and want to show a full or capsule collection.
If your label is less than 3 years old and you would like to show a full collection, you may apply on this page. Or, you may apply through the BERNINA Fashion Fund Showcase.
Designers may show any season, but we recommend showing product that is for Summer and/or Fall 2018 (many designers split their show between seasons). Austin Fashion Week markets to buyers and media as well as directly to the end consumer, so looks that are readily available are useful.
Fashion X Austin will be selecting the following runway designers for shows on April 6 and 7, 2018 at Vault Space:
If you are an ACTIVEWEAR or SWIMWEAR designer, we encourage you to participate in our brand new event, ACTIVE. Go here for information.

Applications to participate in Austin Fashion Week are due by March 1, 2018 or until all spots have been filled. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received, so it is beneficial to complete your application early. There are no fees to apply.
The AFW Advisory Board will review each application and provide each brand with a yes, no or waitlist answer. Those that receive a yes answer will be placed under contract and billed for participation. All fees are due no later than March 7, 2018.
