JUDGING CRITERIA

1. UNCONVENTIONAL
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.

 

2. CREATIVITY
Creative use of unexpected materials is valued.

3. CRAFTSMANSHIP
The more well-crafted the garment, the better. Unique crafting, attachment, and a garment that holds together throughout the show are valued.

4. PRESENTATION
Extra points for a garment, props, accessories, makeup, and music that work well together and a well-executed runway presentation with confidence and character.
