Our namesake label was inspired by you — your style, your must-have details, your feedback. The first batch of fun, versatile pieces are ready for you to flaunt, and it’s time to think about what sensational pieces are up next. So of course, we’re turning to you, our fashionable community, to find out what YOU want to see come to life in our Fall 2016 collection!

Be Our Pin-spiration & You Could Win!

Enter our Be Our Pin-spiration Contest to share what aesthetic inspirations you adore most. Colors, patterns, places, quotes, photos — if you’d like to see it manifested in a fashionable form, we want to see it on your board. Once our submission period ends, our production and design teams will choose their favorite board, based on creativity, seasonality, and how well it captures ModCloth’s brand and ethos. The winning board’s creator will then win a $200 gift certificate AND have an item in our Fall 2016 collection named after them!

Have we piqued your ‘Pinterest’? Here’s some helpful guidelines to get you started:

  • Create a public Pinterest board, and make sure to mention the board is for ModCloth’s Be Our Pin-spiration Contest, either in the title of the board or its description.
  • We encourage you to think outside the box on this one! While we’re happy to see silhouettes and fashion inspiration, the overall mood of your board is what we’re excited about! Consider pinning:
    • Colors, fabrics, and patterns
    •  Dreamy destinations
    • Quotes, books, and literary references
    • Vintage/historical photos
    • Anything else that inspires you!
  • Use each pin’s description to explain what you chose and how it fits into the aesthetic of your board.
  • Once you’re finished, email a link to your board to ourpinspiration@modcloth.com. Also include your name, birthdate, physical address, and telephone number.
  • Boards will be accepted beginning on Tuesday, August 11, 2015, at 10 a.m. ET. The submission period ends on Monday, August 24, 2015, at 9:59 a.m. ET.
  • The winner will be announced on Monday, September 7, 2015 in an update to this post. UPDATE: Winner will be announced Wednesday, September 9, 2015.
  • Note that the rights to any designs you inspire are the sole property of ModCloth.
  • Open only to US residents.
  • For more details, check out our Official Rules.

Pin for your chance to win, starting NOW! Good luck!


UPDATE: The winner is Emily Luttrull, with her ‘Autumn Inspiration‘ board. Congrats, Emily!

    Sounds fun! “Seasonality” is something that will be considered…so is this meant to be more for fall or winter? Or even spring 2016?

    • Brenna 08/13/2015 at 6:06 pm #

      It says fall in the intro paragraph 🙂

  2. Natalie 08/11/2015 at 12:32 pm #

    I am also wondering what seasonality means? I’m starting to think about Fall buy are you already designing for Winter or Spring?

  3. ModAnna 08/12/2015 at 8:10 am #

    Hi Natalie and Sarah! Our team will be designing for our Fall 2016 collection, so focus on autumn inspo. Thanks for your question <3

    Hi, I’ve been working on this board and i was wondering about how many pins it should be? I don’t want to go too overboard.

  5. Karen 08/17/2015 at 2:46 pm #

    I noticed you carry plus sizes. I am waiting for you to offer petite sizes with proportional fabric patterns. I have found adorable petite dresses but the prints were appropriate for women 5’10 and above. Please try and find fabric manufacturers who could design fabrics with pizazz but on a smaller scale.

    Thanks, Love your stuff

    Is this open to residents outside of the U.S. too? (I’m from Australia)

    • ModNatalie 08/18/2015 at 7:43 am #

      Hi, Alannah! Thanks for your question. This contest is only open to residents of the U.S. Sorry! But stayed tuned for future contests with may be open internationally. 🙂

        Hi Natalie,

        Next time you guys post a contest, could you make sure that contestant restrictions are clearly stated? I read the Official Rules and didn’t see any limitations of where the entries could be made from. I’ve spent time putting together a great entry but only now when scrolling through the comments see I can’t enter because I’m in Germany! Such a bummer!

      • Lizzy 08/23/2015 at 12:19 pm #

        This is incredibly disappointing to me. I’ve been working on my board since the 12th, so excited to be a part of this, arranging and re-arranging my pins. I just sent in my entry this morning (I’m from the Netherlands). Before I began, I went over the rules and the post FIVE TIMES to make sure it didn’t say anywhere that the contest was for US residents only.

        The official rules you link to state:

        “Our Contests are open to willing entrants where permitted by the entrant’s country of residence, unless otherwise indicated in the Marketing Release. Contest entries are void where prohibited by the law.”

        Nowhere in the original post did it say this contest was for US residents only. So yeah, kind of upset at this giant oversight.

        • Lizzy 08/26/2015 at 12:12 am #

          Wow, so like, no comment or anything, you just change the blog post like it was there all along?

  7. Ashley Sta. Teresa 08/18/2015 at 2:20 pm #

    How many pins are you looking for?

    • ModNatalie 08/19/2015 at 12:24 pm #

      That’s your call, Ashley! You can add as many as you find inspiring, and it’s up to you to edit them into a cohesive collection inspiration. Thanks for your question!

  8. Beth 08/18/2015 at 5:34 pm #

    When will the winner be announced?

    • ModNatalie 08/19/2015 at 12:22 pm #

      Hi, Beth! The winner will be announced Monday, September 7, 2015 as an update to this post. 🙂

  9. Emily Rascon 08/21/2015 at 6:02 pm #

    Hey I tried to send my entry to your email ourpinspiration@modcloth.com and it sent back to me saying that the email delivery failed :/

  10. Emily 08/24/2015 at 9:09 am #

    I just realized the cutoff was 10 ET, meaning I am 2 hours late and a dollar short.. but I emailed it anyways, just so you could take a look at what inspires my style! I love the nature of this contest, you guys really care about your customers!!

  11. Ashley 08/28/2015 at 10:41 pm #

    Just realized that I was still pinning to my board even after I already entered and sent the completed board. I honestly was enjoying putting together a story, thanks for making a contest fun!
