Event description

Description

NOTE: This is the second of two opportunities to learn about becoming a SHIFT designer. The first session will be held on April 4.


SHIFT: an experiment in fashion design is a fundraiser and runway fashion show for The Right Brain Initiative (a program of the Regional Arts & Culture Council)!


We are putting out a call-to-designers/design teams of all ages and skill levels to submit garments made from nontraditional and found materials. Each piece will display inventive form, style and a creative juxtaposition—shifting the materials from their original form into wearable couture. A panel of local celebrity judges will award three cash prizes to the top designers/design teams and one designer/design team will be named People’s Choice by our audience!


BEST IN SHOW: $1,000

RUNNER UP: $500

THIRD PRIZE: $250

PEOPLE’S CHOICE: 2019 SH/FT Trophy


New this year we are excited to announce our theme: House of the Absurd! Inspired by the nonsensical imaginings of the Dada art movement, we invite designers to explore this whimsical world of the unexpected. Check out our Pinterest mood board to spark some ideas!

Our application will be released on Wednesday, March 27 and due on July 1. The runway show will take place on Thursday, Oct 3 (6-9 PM). The application will be available online (pdf download) or by request (see contact information below). SHIFT Designer Info Sessions are meant to help you with the application process, provide some design inspiration, learn about the event itself and ask questions.
