For the fifth consecutive year, Pittsburgh Fashion Week will cap events with the induction of new members into the Pittsburgh Fashion Hall of Fame.
The public is invited to nominate people with ties to Pittsburgh's fashion and beauty communities to be considered for induction. To make a nomination, people are asked to submit the following:
Nominees will be evaluated based on the longevity and degree of impact they had on Pittsburgh's fashion and/or beauty scenes. They can be residents of the city or people who now live elsewhere but have Pittsburgh roots. Five to eight nominees will be recognized at Pittsburgh Fashion Week.
For the second year, the Pittsburgh Fashion Hall of Fame also will honor an up-and-coming member of Pittsburgh's fashion and beauty industry with the "Exceptional Artist Award."
Honorees will be announced in the spring and inducted at a luncheon at the Omni William Penn on Sept. 28.
