Are you a budding fashion designer? How would you like to have your clothes and/or accessories sold at Belk?

Fashion designers who have a deep connection to the South and want to showcase Modern Southern Style can have their clothes and accessories sold at Belk and on in spring 2017, if they’re selected as winners in Belk’s fourth annual Southern Designer Showcase.

Applicants can visit to submit their applications through March 31, 2016. Designers must be 18 years or older and currently live in the South or have a strong connection to the region. A panel of senior Belk executives will select a group of finalists by April 20, 2016 and invite them to present their designs at Belk headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, on May 19, 2016. The 2016 Southern Designer Showcase winners will be notified following their presentations at Belk headquarters in May. Along with a cash prize, they will have their collections sold in select Belk stores and on in spring 2017.
