F-Factor is looking for designers to participate in the highly anticipated ION Fashion Event, featuring Northwest leaders in fashion and design. Eight talented, up-and-coming Northwest fashion designers and retailers share this exciting event showcasing the Northwest’s extraordinary fashion scene, bringing the heart of fashion to the runway and youth supported by F-factor and Ruby Room programs.

Designers participating in the ION Fashion Event will be given the opportunity to present their brand on the runway or take the challenge to upcycle Ruby Room materials to new runway looks in a design competition awarding the top designer in the Ruby Room show segment $1,000. Only designers participating in the Ruby Room segment of the fashion show are eligible to compete for the cash prize.

About Ruby Room
The Ruby Room was founded on the belief that everyone should be able to attend their high school events, regardless of their ability to pay.  Since 2002 The Ruby Room has “leveled the dance floor” for all high school students. Dresses, shoes, and accessories are collected throughout the year and made available at the Ruby Room Boutique in the spring.  Ruby Room clients are paired with a personal shopper who assists them in picking out the perfect gown.
