NEW TV PROJECT Seeking Portland area Fashion Designers.....

From our daily batch of emails. Good luck!


Hello Tod,



My name is Jesse Rosales and I’m a casting director/development producer based in New York City.

I wanted to get in touch regarding my current project as I’m currently working with OATH Media ( on a fun, new project and I wanted to reach out to see if this is an opportunity you or anyone in your network may be interested in being considered for.


We’re scouring the country to find the most promising up-and-coming designers and cutting-edge crafters for a new Yahoo Lifestyle series (the “Program”).  We’re giving them the opportunity of a lifetime with a chance to launch their product in a huge national retailer! Are you an up-and-coming designer looking for your big break?  Think you have what it takes to tackle our design challenges?  


Please submit a video (shot vertically), by replying to this email and attaching your video, telling us your name, where you live, what you design, what inspired you to be a designer, and why you love it.  Make sure to clearly showcase your work...and your personality!  If we like your video we may feature part or all of it within the Program, and reserve the right to use it in connection with the Program, whether or not you are selected to participate.


Please see the instructions and terms below and definitely let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.
