About The Emerging Designer Program
Getting that big break can often be difficult for brand new designers starting their own line. It can be a huge leap for them to go from selling their designs on their own website or at local independent boutiques, to selling at a major retailer.
At Zappos.com, we recognize that there is so much undiscovered talent that exists in the fashion industry. We really wanted to be able to give new, up-and-coming designers an opportunity to present their designs on a national level. With our newly created “Emerging Designer” program, we are reaching out to designers that are at the beginning stages of getting their collection off the ground. We are looking for those distinctive new lines that have not yet made it to the mass market. The “next big thing” if you will.
Over the past 11+ years, Zappos.com has continued to grow thanks to the overwhelming support of our customers and our vendors. We want to turn that support around and help new talent get their first big break in the retail industry. It is our hope that by giving a national platform and exposure to millions of loyal Zappos customers, we can help get the next great designer or brand their big break.
