Calling all designers, or at least those that don’t sell Macy’s.
There’s room in the matrix for more.
Macy’s fashion office is taking applications for an “open call” to be held Feb. 25 and 26 at the Herald Square flagship. Designers must be at least 18, must use electronic date interchange [EDI] compliant manufacturing facilities, and must apply online from Friday to Jan. 31 at macysinc.com/opencall.
Designers of women’s apparel, men’s apparel, shoes, handbags, fashion accessories, jewelry and beauty can apply. If Macy’s likes what it sees online, designers will get a private review from fashion directors and a chance to network in a “casting call environment” with other Macy’s executives and participating designers.
“It’s an exciting opportunity for us to help nurture the careers of designers by elevating them onto the mainstream fashion stage,” said Nicole Fischelis, Macy’s fashion director.
