The Fashion of Film competition is being produced by Glorified Media the producers of the 8th Annual Charlotte Black Film Festival. This year's theme is " Essence of Creativity" where we are celebrating the Art of Film, the Fashion of Film, the Creation of Film and the Music of Film.

Our Fashion of Film competition will allow designers to showcase their creative talents while incorporating film into their designs. This year’s contest we are asking entrants to design a stylish and innovative garment that reflects their personal interpretation of a fashion flare film.

Designers selected for the competition will be notified and required to pay a $99 showcase fee. Each designer will then be announced at our Fashion of Film networking event held on February 24th. Designers will select a number that will correspond to the film in which his or her design will be created. Models, local press, media and other industry professionals will be in attendance. Designers will have the opportunity to meet with models should they need them for the design showcase.

Designer I Category is open to students presently enrolled in high school or college.
Designer II Category is open to non- students whether you have 20 designs or none but feel you have a flair for fashion and creativity.

Finalists will present their designs at the Fashion of Film Showcase at the Charlotte Convention Center on Friday, April 6th, 2018, at 8 PM. Winners will be announced at the 8th Annual Red Carpet Vision Awards April 7, 2018, at the Charlotte Convention Center.
