Designer & Model Competition
Clash on the Catwalk is a unique event, in that each designer that participates is required to create several designs prior to the show based off of categories given to them during the casting process. During the casting, designers are also able to select the models they will work with for the show. Designers are required to bring their portfolio's and any designs they've previously created, and models must bring professional head shots to the casting.
Prior to the show, designers create several looks based off of categories given during the casting. The competition aims to display the designers creative abilities while also bringing a more competitive aspect to the show. The categories that the designers are given are:
Beautiful Beginnings-Designers recreate one of their very first designs
Brand-Designers are required to create a look of their own that mimics the look of a reputable brand
Runway Ready-Designers must create a glamorous look that is red carpet worthy
Wild Card-Designers are allowed to create any style look of their choice
In addition to the designers competition, models also battle it out on the runway during the model competition. The winning model is selected through crowd applause. Both the winning designer and model is featured in The Hype Magazine, a proud sponsor of the Clash on the Catwalk competition.
