PAST PARTNERS OF BURGHÀLIE EVENTS
How It Works for Designers
Designers register through our online application and pay a non-refundable application fee. This will enter the designer into the competition. The total cost to participate varies depending on the city, however, this deposit can be applied to that remaining balance.
Designers will then receive an invitation via email for a virtual consultation with the event director. During the virtual consultation, the event director will explain the competition in more detail and the judging process. This will help the designers better understand how to prepare their collection for the competition.
Designers must create 6 looks (TBR X ATL EDITION) or 10-12 looks for (TBR x NYFW EDITION) to present at the Burghàlie Resort Fashion Competition. Designers will be judged in 3 categories the day of the show: Mood Board, Quality of Design, and Runway Presentation.
Winner will be announced at the Burghàlie Resort following the runway presentation.
How It Works for Models
PHASE 1: Models register through our online application and pay the application fee. Upon approval, models will receive an invitation for a virtual consultation.
PHASE 2: Models will attend the virtual consultation to learn more about the event. Within 72 hours of the virtual consultation, the models will receive an approval or denial letter from our team.
PHASE 3: Approved models will then be required to complete 3 workshops. Each workshop consists of a "lesson and challenge" centered around a category that the model will be judged in (Editorial, Commercial, and Runway Modeling). Following each lesson, the models will be required to put their knowledge to the test with a challenge. Following each workshop, models will receive a score based on their understanding and execution of the lesson. These scores will be totaled to help determine our winners.
PHASE 4: Fashion Show Day. Winners will be announced following the runway presentation.
