MATERIALS: Anything BUT FABRIC ... the more creative and transformative use of the materials the better.

YOUTH DESIGN COMPETITION
has two categories:

Youth designs should be primarily created and constructed by a youth within the age range of the corresponding category.
Amateurs are welcomed and encouraged!
Model your own design, grab your supermodel friend, or you may request a model be provided for you.
Most important is the unique and creative use and transformation of unconventional materials. The less the material looks like its previous form, the better. The least fabric-like the materials, the better.
Creative use of unexpected materials is valued.
The more well-crafted the garment, the better. Unique crafting, attachment, and a garment that holds together throughout the show are valued.
Extra points for a garment, props, accessories, makeup, and music that work well together and a well-executed runway performance with confidence and character.
