(PITTSBURGH) — It’s Pittsburgh Fashion Week’s 5TH year running annual event. As part of their fashion showcase, their proud induction caps the week long event. NOMINATIONS are being accepted for the 2014 list of inductees into the Pittsburgh Fashion Hall of Fame at Pittsburgh Fashion Week this fall.
Are you considered a fashion icon or know someone who is?
Pittsburgh Fashion Week is looking for individuals who have impacted Pittsburgh through fashion, style or beauty.
The public is invited to nominate anyone with roots in Pittsburgh for the award. Nominations must include the name of the nominee, explanation of why the person is deserving, and contact information of the nominee. Nominations are due March 21 and may be submitted via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by snail mail to Pittsburgh Fashion Week, P.O. Box 17947, Pittsburgh, PA, 15235-7947. Please keep submissions brief. Bullet point are preferred.
Nominees will be evaluated based on longevity and significance of contribution in the general areas of fashion or beauty and must have at least 10 years in the industry. They can be persons living in Pittsburgh, or persons born or raised in Pittsburgh and currently living elsewhere. Five to eight honorees may be culled from what are expected to be scores of nominees.
The purpose is to shine a spotlight on fashion icons from the city of Pittsburgh. We want to bring them to the forefront, honor them and continue to inform Pittsburgh we have persons who have greatly impacted the World of Fashion. In addition to this induction, we will announce the “Exceptional Artist Award” now in its second year. This award will be given to an up and coming artisan exhibiting similar qualities of the nominees.
Honorees will be announced at the end of March and will be inducted at a luncheon held at the Omni William Penn hotel, downtown, on the last day of fashion week. In which, we invite you to share another historic moment with us. The September 28th luncheon will be open to the public and will culminate a week of activities beginning Monday, September 22, 2014. http://www.pittsburghfashionweek.com/hall-of-fame/2013hall-of-fame-inductess
