We've gotten lots of great questions about how we are running the competition…here they are + answers:

How does the Beauty competition work? Style teams will draw a theme from a bowl on Friday, March 13  during the Designer Show Case II (tickets will be provided to contest participants).  They'll have 48 hours to develop & execute their concept based on the theme they've drawn. Sky is the limit on creativity!

What are the themes? You'll have to find out on March 13!

How many people can be on a team? We recommend four – a team leader, hair stylist, make up artist + stylist to put it all together.

How many models can be in each collection? There will be 8 looks in each collection.

What will the models will be wearing? (Leggings & tank top? Button down & dress slacks?) Good question. It’s up to your team! We want this to be a visual explosion! Bring your theme to life however you want! ...however no swimwear or lingerie allowed :)

Will the designers be choosing their own models or are they assigned? Models will be assigned by Develop Model Management on Friday, March 13. You will be given all of your models' contact details immediately after the show.  We encourage you to reach out to your models ASAP when you receive their information.

Can style teams choose number of male and female models? Teams do not get to pick their models.

What are the judging categories and who will be doing the judging? A dedicated panel of beauty industry experts will judge teams on creativity and visual impact.  This panel is separate from the OFW Selection Panel.

Do we have to pay for tickets to the show? Participating styling teams will receive backstage passes plus a set of complimentary tickets for additional guests.

Styling teams will be announced on Jan. 30!
