The winners, who will receive $500 and their names on the garment tags, represent a broad range of ages and professions, from high-school students to veteran costumers. ModCloth plans to make the competition a regular occurence.

The winners will receive $500 and their names on the garment tags of their respective designs.

“I am thrilled to see the first collection from our Make the Cut contest come to life, because it is the start of a larger program that will give aspiring designers the opportunity to jump-start their careers in fashion more than anything we’ve previously been able to do as a brand,” says Koger. “With our recent funding round backed by Norwest Venture Partners, I envision ModCloth being in an even better position to expand our work with emerging designers to get their items manufactured for the first time.”

Zooey Deschanel is going to be all over these like a mofo.

    Hi, I am an ethial fashion blogger and I wanted to ask a doubt I had regarding the collection. When you write “Under the supervision of talents in and around Northern California, including a pattern-maker in Oakland, a fabric-cutter in San Francisco, and garment-finishers in the East Bay.” do you mean the clothes were made in the US? Do you know if there is any kind of gurantee of ethical labour in the collection given my Modcloth? I just wanted to know because I couldn´t find further issue on their website. Thank you!
