The nomination phase lasts until March 28th - long enough to ensure that as many people in the community have the opportunity to nominate.
The second phase is voting. The Voting phase begins on April 1st 2017 as soon as the selected nominees per category have been announced and presented online. There will be a total of 3 nominees per category and the community will again be called upon to voice their opinion by voting for their favorite fashion artist.
The third phase is the groundbreaking award ceremony. It will be held May 12th 2017 during the FashNet runway show. It will be an unforgettable evening of red carpet fashion, live entertainment and of course, the Oscars-like ceremony in which the winners will be presented their awards and have the opportunity to thank their supporters on stage. It is sure to be an unforgettable evening of fashion, style and entertainment.
