1 - 4pm
The Festival of Arts is known for putting on truly unique and imaginative events, and for the sixth year in a row, Festival artists are making fashion their medium at Festival Runway Fashion on Saturday, August 2 from 1 – 4pm.
Just like TV’s “Project Runway,” see who’s IN and who’s OUT this year as Festival artists compete to create the most inspired couture using reclaimed, reused, or recycled materials.
The show “where fashion meets art” offers cash prizes of $1,000 in four categories: Most Creative Concept, Most Exciting Ensemble, Most Innovative Use of Materials and Most Glamorous & Elegant “Red Carpet” worthy creation. There will also be a “People’s Choice Award” to be voted on at the event. Competing for the top prize are Festival exhibitors Luciano Bortone, Antje Campbell, W. Bradley Elsberry, Richard A. Evans, Troels Larsen, Elizabeth McGhee, Adam Neeley, Mariana Nelson, Dan Skaggs, John Tolle, and Kirstin Whalen.
See fine art meet high fashion! Free with Festival of Arts admission.
