Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
The bad news: The nomination process for Young Guns, Racked's search for the country's best up-and-coming designers, closes next Tuesday, May 20. The good news: That still gives you more than four days to nominate your favorite young designer—or yourself. (Yes, you can totally nominate yourself. Lean in, people!)
We're looking for designers who are 35 or under, or who've started their collections less than two years ago. Once we have our list of nominees, we'll call on a panel of experts—think Steven Alan, Jessie Randall of Loeffler Randall, Jennifer Mankins of Bird—to help us select 12 to 15 winners who will then be celebrated on the site. Here's a look at last year's process. To nominate yourself or a friend, head right this way.
