We have had so much fun with our past contests (nautical and repurposed denim). We have another contest set for this school year for any students in our Summer or Fall 2014 or Spring 2015 classes.

Play It Again

Fashion as Art!

Repurpose – Recycle – Re-use

Create new designs from used materials of some form – repurposed fabric/fibers, repurposed found objects (not new). Go to thrift stores, your friends’ closets or your own closet. 10% of the materials used in this garment can be new. Please do not purchase stacks of paper products for this contest garment. Think fun and frivolous! Be inspired by Project Runway.


  • A garment that covers and fits one of the department dressforms.
  • Garments should be able to be easily removed from the dressforms (think about closures – zippers, buttons, etc.).
  • 90% of this garment must be made from repurposed materials (fabric/fibers/clothing items, etc).
  • Before and after pictures, of the materials used and the finished garment, must accompany the entry.
  • A brief write up of the process, the inspiration and materials used must accompany the entry.
  • One entry per person.
