Four participating schools – Fashion Institute of Technology, Parsons The New School for Design, Pratt Institute, and The School of Visual Arts – sent two teams of five students (one focused on womenswear, and the other on menswear) to compete in the day-long contest that challenged the selected students to conceptualize, style, and shoot a compelling editorial utilizing its new 40,000 square foot photography studio in Williamsburg.

Industry experts including men’s fashion director of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Bruce Pask; photography director of Vogue, Ivan Shaw, and fashion industry consultant Julie Gilhart acted as mentors throughout the day, providing real-time feedback and guidance to each team as they worked to produce an image in-line with the Amazon Fashion brand.

The five hour challenge culminated in individual team presentations to a panel of industry experts including ready-to-wear designer Steven Alan; editor-in-chief of Lucky Magazine, Eva Chen; fashion industry consultant Julie Gilhart; Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) chief executive officer, Steven Kolb; womenswear designer Derek Lam; creative director of VICE Magazine, Annette Lamothe-Ramos; chief creative officer of Amazon Fashion, Dennis Leggett; co-founder of Art + Commerce, Jim Moffat; men’s fashion director of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Bruce Pask; co-founder and creative director of Milk, Mazdack Rassi; womenswear designer Tracy Reese; photography director of Vogue, Ivan Shaw; and model Elettra Wiedemann, who voted on the best womenswear and menswear image. Each team was judged on creativity, wardrobe styling, composition, photography, art direction, set design, fashion editing and consistency with Amazon Fashion branding.

Parson’s meswear and womenswear images will be featured on Amazon.com/Fashion. A total of $100,000 was awarded: each winning team received $25,000 for their work and an additional $25,000 for their school. The winning teams will also receive a mentoring session with Cathy Beaudoin, President of Amazon Fashion; Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA; and Andrew Rosen, founder and president of Theory.
