Pittsburgh Fashion Week - Fashion Hall of Fame Nominations

Pittsburgh Fashion Week is looking for the next six Fashion Hall of Fame Inductees

(PITTSBURGH) -- Nominations are being accepted for the fourth year inductees into the Pittsburgh Fashion Hall of Fame at Pittsburgh Fashion Week this fall.

Are you considered a fashion icon or know someone who is?

Pittsburgh Fashion Week (PFW) is looking for individuals who have impacted Pittsburgh through fashion, style or beauty.

The public is invited to nominate anyone with roots in Pittsburgh for the award. Nominations must include the name of the nominee, explanation of why the person is deserving, and contact information of the nominee. Nominations are due February 20 and may be submitted via email to or by snail mail to Pittsburgh Fashion Week, P.O. Box 17947, Pittsburgh, PA, 15235-7947. Please keep submissions brief. Bullet points are preferred.

Nominees will be evaluated based on longevity and significance of contribution in the general areas of fashion or beauty and must have at least 10 years in the industry. They can be persons living in Pittsburgh, or persons born or raised in Pittsburgh and currently living elsewhere. Five to eight honorees may be culled from what are expected to be scores of nominees.

The purpose is to shine a spotlight on fashion icons from the city of Pittsburgh. We want to bring them to the forefront, honor them and continue to inform Pittsburghers we have persons who have greatly impacted the World of Fashion. That is why we are honoring these iconic figures.

In addition to this induction and for the time, we will announce a NEW component the “Exceptional Artist Award”. This award will be given to an up and coming artesian exhibiting similar qualities of the nominees. Honorees will be announced in March and will be inducted at a luncheon held at the Omni William Penn hotel, downtown, on the last day of the fashion week.  In which, we invite you to share another historic moment with us. The September 29th luncheon will be open to the public and will culminate a week of activities beginning Monday, September 23.

The public can keep up with the latest developments of Pittsburgh Fashion Week at and on both the Friends of Pittsburgh Fashion Week page on Facebook and Twitter social media sites.
