Montreal designers: we want you!
Drawn and Plastered is about supporting and promoting all art forms, so unlike other drink and draw figure drawing events, we invite aspiring fashion designers (and wig-makers, jewelry designers, makeup artists…yes everything) to create original looks for our models to showcase at our events.
Want to see a bit of what we’re all about? Check out our video page.
We understand that designing and sewing clothes and even accessories for multiple models takes time. With our new convention tour business model, you have eight months to work together with our team to produce costuming for whichever of our three yearly themes inspires you.
<h2>How to get Involved</h2>
So, how do you get started and become one of our featured Montreal designers? Simply send us an e-mail including:
- A little info about yourself
- The type of clothing/accessories/both/whatever you create
- Some photos with samples of your work
- A few ideas on what you’d like to do
If you make the cut, we’ll then send you our TOP SECRET list of figure drawing events for the year so you can see far in advance which themes we’re planning and decide which one is right for you.
As a designer you’ll also have a say in the choice of models, because nobody knows as well as you do how your work is best represented.
Once the big decisions are made, it’s time to start designing! We’ll help you arrange to meet with the models for discussions and fittings, and set up a photo shoot to best display your work along with the theme of the month. Along the way you’ll be a part of our Patreon content displayed on Patreon, YouTube, and YouNow.
Finally, it’s fashion show time! Your work will be exposed live to a huge and ever-growing group of artists and fashion-lovers across Canada at well-attended comic conventions, and seriously, how often does THAT opportunity come along?
