2021 KMAC Couture Artist Submission Information
The KMAC Couture 2021 curatorial statement, submission guidelines, required submission materials, and frequently asked questions can all be found in the KMAC Couture 2021 Artist Submission Packet available below. Please review this packet thoroughly. Interested artists who still have questions about the submission process are encouraged to attend one of our KMAC Couture Information Sessions, detailed below. Alternately, artists may contact for further assistance.
Additionally, please note that KMAC Couture 2021 will once again be a film experience rather than a live runway show. Plans are in place for a live film premiere event to debut the film, but the feasibility of this event will depend on COVID-19 restrictions at the time.
