  • Front of House volunteers are involved in collecting tickets, helping to arrange seating, assisting vendors/sponsors to their booths and helping set up, seating guests in assigned sections, and any other task that require assistance prior to, during, and following the runway showcases.  

  • Back of House volunteers are those who will be part of the designer and stylist team. Responsibilities include steaming & ironing garments, dressing & undressing models, keeping all accessories and clothing brought by designers organized, and repacking all outfits made/brought by the designer. Designers are encouraged to use their designer assistants to help in any and all tasks necessary to complete their runway show.

  • Other potential areas for volunteers are available based on experience!

Attention all volunteers! We have some news to share regarding volunteer opportunities for our upcoming NYFW event. We regret to inform you that we are no longer accepting volunteer applications as we are phasing out this portion of Rise. We appreciate your interest and support.
