Upcycle…Turn your dad’s shirt into a top or skirt, create a skirt out of a pair of old jeans, make a shrug or one shoulder top out of a t-shirt…this year, project runway is all about Upcycling.
Workshops will include how to create fresh, new garments from the old things hanging in your closet and how to show them off on the runway! Participants will learn how to alter existing garments, how to walk, stand, turn, make eye contact and facial expressions that show off outfits in the best way.
Two Upcycle workshop times will be offered on Thursday, June 26. Participants can attend one or both workshop times. Depending on what and how many garments you want to upcycle, the following items will need to be brought from home:
- One of dad’s old dress shirts and matching tie (the shirt needs to be larger than your size)
- T-shirt (needs to be larger than your size)
The evening fashion show will include spot lights, upbeat music and exciting world fashion center backdrops. It will be a chance for the participants to practice their stage presence and show off garments they have Upcycled!
