Valentine Soiree Designer Application

Being a fashion designer for the Valentine Soiree on Feb 11, 2023 is a very unique experience as you have the opportunity to create designs for sponsors and fulfill their dream of walking a runway! Your customer service skills feel rewarded as you help people feel beautiful and inspire creativity. AND this is for a good cause to help feed our hungry children in this country.

Last year we had over 250 people at the event, media attention and Avital's social media platform has an outreach to over 50,000 people where we will highlight your designs.

Being a designer for the Valentine Soiree also means you get to join a community of high powered entrepreneurs and be a part of an exciting extravaganza. We can provide you professional photography, videography, hair and make up, models plus compensation to cover the cost of your materials. We will also post your designs on a social media platform reaching over 50,000 viewers. Total value of all of these gifts is over $4000! 

Please fill this out on a COMPUTER as it does not work on a phone and do so by Nov 17, 2022.

Question 22 of 28

We will schedule a required rehearsal during the week before the event, have deadlines to get design drawings if the sponsor is getting their shoes and jewelry elsewhere, request your runway music and stage intro by Jan 9, and ask you to arrive early on the day of the event to help your team get ready and be ready yourself to meet and greet at the VIP cocktail. Would you be willing to follow through with all of these requirements and let us know well in advance if any issues come up with meeting them?

Question 23 of 28

Each designer may end up with a mix of pieces in the show for their models with outfits that you invest in and keep, and outfits created for sponsors where we cover the cost of materials and the sponsor keeps the outfit. How many pieces total would you like in the show? (We typically want 10 designs from each designer with at least five of them being for sponsors.)

Question 24 of 28

How many sponsor outfits can you make? Most sponsors will be ready to start in October and November and we would ask for those design drawings by November 30 if they need to work with the jewelry and shoe designers separately.
