Seattle is known for two things - rainy weather and great coffee! In the spirit of our 2017 host city, we're calling this year's fashion contest "Rain 'n Shine!" We want you to "espresso" yourself and design something no Jem doll has ever had before - outrageous rainwear! After practicing for their next big show, Jem and her friends head down to that ultra hip coffee shop, Starlights, for macchiatos and flat whites. And of course they're making a splash in both the headlines and the puddles! Think wild raincoats, stunnin' slickers, glittery galoshes, and clashin' capelets. No decaf designs please! Be bold! And did we mention we're including a custom coordinated, doll-sized coffee cup with the produced fashion? Once you have your fashion design brewed to perfection, submit it to JemCon using our official template. There's sure to be a "latte" competition, so don't be left out in the rain! .
Entries must be received by February 24th and submitted on the official template available at jemcon.org. They will be reviewed for originality, creativity and practicality for custom production. Finalists will be posted on jemcon.org for voting to take place shortly thereafter! The winning fashion designer will receive design credit and their very own custom made fashion, which will also be made available to JemCon 2017 attendees with registration for the 2017 convention.
By entering the contest you grant JemCon and all associated parties an indefinite, nontransferable license to use your design and derivatives of your design for promotional and fundrasing purposes associated with JemCon. You understand that the winning design will have a limited edition fashion produced adapted from the submitted design and that this will be used as a promotional item for JemCon.
Each person is allowed two entries. Both entries must be submitted together.
Thanks to all of the talented designers who entered the JemCon 2016 Fashion Design Contest! We love all of the submissions we received!
The contest is now closed. We will be reviewing each design for originality, creativity and practicality of production. The finalists will be posted SOON right here for FAN VOTING! If you want to vote, make sure you are a registered on the website!
Every year we are truly impressed with the creativity fans show us! You are all design superstars to us!

As an award-winning movie star and rock star, Jem and her friends shine on the red carpet! JemCon 2016's Official Fashion Design Contest will celebrate the “Red Carpet Rock Stars” with your winning design!

We want you to create a glamorous, edgy look that will be custom produced as the official fashion for JemCon 2016.
And - for the first time ever! - the 2016 fashion will include a custom guitar accessory! How will your favorite rocker coordinate her red carpet look with her instrument? Put your designing skills to work on our special guitar template so that our girl's custom accessory is just as stylish as she is!
