In partnership with Downtown Business Association of Charlottesville:


The fashion challenge consists of teams from varying disciplines and levels of experience with 4 designers per team and 1 model. These teams will work together to create a collaborative design using the resources provided, execute the design, and present the finished products in a juried competition on Saturday April 12 at 5:00PM.

There are three projects each with a different theme. Teams will know themes in advance, allowing time to form a collaborative working rhythm from design to construction to presentation.

#1- Upcycling. Re-using recycled or cast-off clothing/fabric to create something new.
#2- Foreign Objects. Using non-traditional objects in design. Object may include plastic laundry basket, plastic bags, Christmas tree ornaments, seashells, buttons, etc.
#3- Modernized Fairy Tale Characters. Each team will select a fairy tale book out of a bag as their initial inspiration.

Competition is open to participants of all levels of experience, age 14 +. No entry fee to participate.

The fashion show will be free and open to the public.
