Belk Seeks Southern Designers for 125 th Anniversary Contest

Belk has launched a contest for Southern apparel designers in multiple categories for its 125th anniversary celebration. The retailer is accepting photographs and samples in the women’s, men’s and kids’ apparel, shoes, and women’s accessories categories for its Southern Showcase. Entrants must be from the 16 Southern states where Belk operates stores or have strong connections to the South. Winning designs will be produced for sale at Belk stores and featured in advertising campaigns for spring 2013.

“We are proud of our history as a Southern-based retailer and want to introduce even more great brands to our assortment,” said Arlene Goldstein, vice president of trend merchandising and fashion direction. “We are looking for brands that represent the talented South and the modern, Southern style we deliver every day.”
