Artist Opportunity for WNC Designers

Three local creatives have come together to provide an exciting opportunity for craft artists and designers of all kinds. Fashion designer Angela Kim and Knitwear designer Ryan-Ashley Anderson are working as stylists in collaboration with Art Director Chris Sams for a photo shoot that combines rustic rural scenery with contemporary handmade furniture, apparel, jewelry and accessories to showcase the talents and skills of WNC designers.
Why be a part of this?

Collaboration is an important part of networking and a great way to expand your market. This project is meant to help you, and the coordinating designers, diversify  portfolios. The photos produced from this project will be used on various blogs where all designers will get credited for their specific work and participation in the project. Additionally, as a designer you will receive files of any photos your work is featured in! Use them for your blog, your website, or advertising.
The Details:
Submissions  will be accepted until March 5, 2013. Since this is a fashion shoot, some of the things you might not think of submitting could be exactly what is being looked for. On the other hand, some of your most popular items may not be right for this. Have fun and be creative when submitting.
