Call for Costume Artists

House of Suarez, Vogue Ball, Liverpool, Invisible Wind Factory, Regent Road, L3, deadline 28 July, 5pm

The Legendary House of Suarez is delighted to announce the opportunity for emerging costume designer-makers to showcase their talents at the Vogue Balls 2017/18 in Liverpool and Manchester through three funded costume commissions.

In 2017/18 House of Suarez is commissioning three costumes to be presented as part of the three style categories at the balls in Liverpool and Manchester.

The Seven Deadly Sins Ball is inspired by the seven cardinal sins in literature, on film, in theatre and in our imaginations…. Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride. Which one (or how many) will you represent? Are they within you? Are they in others? How do they move? What do they wear? Bring them to life…. Serve Your Sin.

The commission is open to any costume artist aged 18 or over and based within the UK. We welcome applications from artists in training, emerging artists and experienced designers.

One design will be selected for each of the three costume categories by a panel of industry professionals and the artists will be awarded a budget (to include all materials, labour, storage and transport costs) in order to realise the design into a wearable costume. All costumes will be presented as part of the Liverpool Ball on 21st October 2017 and the Manchester Ball in Spring 2018.

Deadline for all submissions:                    Friday 28th July 2017 by 5pm
Chosen submissions announced:           Friday 11th August 2017
