Call for Designers



This year the St. Albert Amplify Festival is presenting its very first Fashion Show and Design Challenge on Saturday, July 27th, 2019! This is our first foray into all things textile art and we are looking for everything from costume designers to jewelry and accessory designers to young entrepreneurs with their own brands to visual artists looking to have fun creating on a new medium. It doesn’t matter if you’re experienced or just starting out, we want you to share your vision at Amplify’s first Fashion Show!

We have four different ways to share your art:

  • Apply as a designer and share your original clothing or costumes.
  • If you have sewing skills but need help getting started, you can apply for our Design Challenge. Once you apply, you will receive a mystery box of materials to start you on your way. 
  • If you can’t sew, we got you covered: Apply for a white dress! We supply a simple dress and you can cut, staple, glue, colour, paint and dye the material until you have an original creation for our runway.
  • If you’re more into shoes, you can apply for white tennis shoes and, just like the dress, you can create an original shoe design using whatever process you can dream up.

The deadline to apply is Monday, July 8, 2019. However, supplies are extremely limited, so please apply early to secure your spot!

So, you’re probably thinking, how is this all going to work… read on for process, criteria and to apply!


Step 1: Read the Criteria page and make sure you understand all the “rules.” Then figure out how you want to get involved. Would you like us to supply a dress or a pair of shoes for you to transform? Would you like us to supply a box of materials to help you get started? Or would you like to share your original designs?

Step 2: Apply as soon as possible! We have a limited supply of shoes, white dresses and mystery boxes. And if you’re making an original design, the sooner you commit, the sooner you can get started sewing. You’ll also have to determine at this point if you’d like to model your designs yourself or have us supply a model. If we supply the model, you’ll have to let us know what size they need to be to fit your clothing/shoes.

Step 3: If you’ve requested supplies, the next step will be picking up those supplies from us at St. Albert Place, (5 St. Anne Street) in the Community Services Department. You’ll find us on the first floor down the same hall as the art studios.

Step 4: CREATE!

Step 5: Drop-off your designs on July 25th (location TBD) to us, so we can prepare and have everything run smoothly the night of the show.

Step 6: Celebrate your work with us on July 27th at our first ever Fashion Show and Design Challenge!
