f7a89426e3a4562f3521aa5dfe42f37c7a5f7d64VFILES has unveiled the star-powered panel of mentors for its seventh season of VFILES Runway. The latest lineup includes supermodel Naomi Campbell, rapper Young Thug, stylist Mel Ottenberg, make-up artist Pat McGrath, and Fear of God designer Jerry Lorenzo.

The team of mentors will work closely with the up-and-coming designers who will be chosen to show their collections during the upcoming New York Fashion Week event.

“We are incredibly excited to be consulting with Naomi, Pat, Jerry, Mel, and Jeffery as we prep for the seventh season of VFILES Runway. Each has an incredible vision and are also not scared to take risks where moving fashion forward is concerned,” said VFILES CEO and founder Julie Anne Quay in a statement. “Fashion today belongs to the risk takers and those who will push the boundaries of their ideas and how they are communicated.”

VFILES also continues to crowdsource the rest of the show's participants including the stylists, hair and makeup artists, models and photographers through submissions to its social networking platform. The runway show is set to take place on September 7.
