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

How does the Beauty and Style competition work? Style teams will draw a theme based on a specific trend from a bowl on March 7 during the Designer Show Case I (tickets will be provided to contest participants).  They'll have 48 hours to develop & execute their concept based on their trend. Sky is the limit on creativity!

What are the themes? The themes will be based on current trends but you’ll have to find out on March 7!

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!

Will the designers be choosing their own models or are they assigned? Models will be assigned by Develop Model Management on Friday, March 7.

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? The OFW Selection panel will judge teams on creativity and visual impact.

Styling teams will be announced on Feb. 7!
