Celebrate Fashion Week on ArtStation from April 5-9

In the past few years, digital trends have been transforming the fashion industry, opening up a world of opportunity for fashion designers, creatives, and digital artists. From April 5 – 9, we’re inviting artists to take part in ArtStation Fashion Week to learn more about emerging opportunities in the fashion industry and have their artwork showcased.

All week, ArtStation will be highlighting the Fashion & Costume channel and promoting the work of talented artists in the fashion industry on our platform and social media. Tune in for a week filled with special features, interviews, and free live online events brought to you by our friends at Substance and Drawing Cabaret Couture.

If you’re an artist who creates work in fashion, now is a great time to post your work and discover other awesome artists in your field!

For Students

If you’re currently studying fashion, be sure to tag your artwork on ArtStation with #FashionStudent. You’ll then be able to join the community of other fashion students on ArtStation. It also makes your work easier to find by peers and employers looking to hire new graduates.

Students who post in the #FashionStudent channel during Fashion Week will get the chance to enter a giveaway for 1 of 10 $25 ArtStation gift cards to spend on the ArtStation Marketplace.
