The Charleston Fashion Week, which takes place March 20 to 24, is now opening up their application process for their emerging designer competition, according to The Times and Democrat.
There will be 20 semifinalists who will showcase their creations during a runway show, and will be judged by well-known professionals in the industry, according to the media outlet.
Charlotte Hess is one of the few designers who has been featured in magazines such as Elle and Vogue after winning this competition.
"CFW provided me with an incredible platform to showcase my work to a massive audience," Hess told the news source. "It was an extraordinary experience, from the selection process to my final win. I couldn't imagine a more nurturing group of people to guide me into the fashion industry. I know I will continue to collaborate with the extremely talented artists, media and producers that I met that week."
Prospective fashion designers may want to know what they will earn once they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals in this field make around $61,000, which was the annual median salary for individuals in this field in 2008.
