TERMS & CONDITIONS
THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Each year, our independent panel of international judges begin calling for applications in 3 stages. After registering below, you will be contacted by the MBFRSL team with the brief for collections or the MBFRSL 2023 season.
PUTTING TOGETHER YOUR COLLECTION PROPOSAL
You will be given time to put together an initial collection proposal comprising of your brand information, mood board, fabric board, colour board and lineup of the collection you would like to propose. These proposals are submitted by email to MBFRSL following which the panel will review your collection for suitability, design, and innovation. In specific cases the panel may make recommendations and request applicants to reapply.
At the end of each stage, the semi-finalists of each stage will be tentatively notified of their advancement to the next round of selection. Following the end of Stage 3, the panel will review all semi-finalist applications and short-list applicants who they feel meet the requirements and standards of MBFRSL. Short-listed applicants will then be notified of their confirmed advancement to the next round of selection and applications will be closed.
THE NEXT STAGE
Short-listed applicants will be expected to sign a contract and pay a refundable deposit to MBFRSL to confirm their intended participation in the MBFRSL 2023 runways.
Shortlisted applicants will be asked to produce 1 full silhouette of their proposed collection for review by a member of the panel or a selected representative as well as their finalised lineups. Following these reviews, the panel will convene and make final selections on the applicants who will showcase in the MBFRSL 2023.
The finalised participants of the MBFRSL 2023 runways will be announced 2 months prior to the event. All collections showing in the MBFRSL will need to be completed and ready for fitting two weeks prior to the MBFRSL event.
