Appleton Downtown

NEWAA is partnering with Creative Downtown for an Avant Garde Fashion Challenge happening in conjunction with the annual Spring Fashion Show on Saturday, April 14th from 9am-noon. Show location TBA.

This challenge (similar to Project Runway…but Appleton-ized), is now accepting application submissions. We are seeking fashion designs inspired by Downtown. The first round of applications are due by March 23 and include a design sketch/concept. From there we will be selecting the Top 8 submissions to create their look and walk the runway on April 14! The looks can be made out of any material – you are not limited to fabric. The Top 8 then have the chance to win the grand prize of $500 (selected by a panel of judges the day of) and $100 People’s Choice Prize (chosen by fashion show attendees).

May the downtown urban landscape inspire your creativity... see you on the runway, all you downtown lovers, artists, and fashionistas!
