Apply to be a 2019 Style Spotter

Ever dreamed of being a Style Spotter at HPMKT?  Or wondered how they're chosen?

Each calendar year, High Point Market Authority creates a team comprising the industry's most popular & emerging designers and influencers who famously tag & promote their top product and trend picks at Market.


So if you think you might be Style Spotter material, let them know!  (Even if you're not sure, what do you have to lose?)

Read about the program and how to access the online interest form on the Style Spotters hub page here. (A direct link to the form can be found here.)

Submissions are being accepted through 5:00 PM ET on July 25, after which a selection committee will meet to review the applicants and make a final selection in August.

The 2019 Style Spotters team will be announced at the Style Spotters LIVE! breakfast at Fall Market on Tuesday, October 16.  (So if you're not on the premises yet, do like the Oscar nominees and pretend you were sound asleep --yet somehow in full makeup--when you get the news!)

If you're not familiar, the Style Spotters program, launched during the October 2011 Market, features home fashion "pace-setters" who zip around Market and showcase their favorite products and top trends from High Point Market exhibitors via Pinterest, the at-Market Style Spotters LIVE! event, the StyleReport, and various media interviews.


The program is led by our hometown gal Michelle Jennings Wiebe, HPMA’s Style Spotter “Emeritus” and founder & president of Studio M.

We hope you'll consider throwing your hat (and comfortable shoes) into the ring -- and if you're a Steelyard Insider, be sure to mention it in the "Any Comments?" section (#25).

Looking forward to seeing you on next year's team!
