A standout look from IDRS 2014 winner Deborah Roberts' Silvae collection.

It shouldn't surprise us that, when looking back on the best runway moments of the past few years, the Bellevue Collection's Independent Designer Runway Showcase is nearly always at the top of our most-liked list. Each year designers show up to compete with bigger, faster, stronger work, leaving us totally awestruck at the level of talent in this city.

And now, it just might be your turn. 

How can you get in on the IDRS action? And why might you want to?

The how is pretty simple. If you or someone you know is an up-and-coming or long-established locally based designer ready for the next big move, click over to the Bellevue Collection's Independent Designer Runway Showcase 2015 application now. As for the why: IDRS is so much more than a runway show. It's a chance to learn from some of the best in the city's fashion industry and navigate the ropes when it comes to design, marketing, styling, and production.

As one of the judges for this year's competition, I'm excited to see what you come up with. The submission deadline is March 15.
