In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Glamour, Style, and Fierce Competition: Fashion Prize 2021

Who's going to set the runway on 'fire'?

Forget Milan. Forget New York City. The new city for fashion is Shreveport. Kicking off Prize Fest in 2021, the Fashion Prize sets the bar high for glamour, high fashion and the most fun you’ll have at a fashion show. This year six designers made the final competition: Jules Eckelkamp, Jessica Hall, Sara Kluss, Brittani Shabazz, Donna Strebeck and Catalina Ramirez Varela. These designers have spent all year working on a collection as well as going through mentorship workshops, critiques and peer support.

On Friday, September 24, 2021, the designers come together for the Fashion Prize Finals at Sci-Port Discovery Center. Celebrity judges will take a look at the stunning collections and declare a winner. Also showing is 2020 Fashion Prize winner Hephzibah Thomas. Since the event was virtual last year, those in attendance this year will see her winning looks.

If you purchase a VIP pass to Fashion Prize (get them here) you can hang out with the designers at the Pre-Party. It’s an extra hour before the Finals on the rooftop of Sci-Port with a spectacular Shreveport sunset view. After the Finals, everyone can stay for the Post-Runway Party until 11:00pm.

You must have a negative Covid-19 test (72 hours before arrival) or proof of vaccination in order to attend any in person event of Prize Fest. Click here for the health and safety guidelines.

Fashion Prize is one part of Prize Fest and is one of the more recent additions to the lineup. Also happening the same weekend is Music Prize so you can enjoy both events.
