The Designer’s Challenge is a one of a kind fashion challenge in our region that was inspired by Project Runway. As NEW and gently used formal and semi-formal dresses are being donated throughout the year for the upcoming adDRESS a Need SALE in March, some outdated and downright ugly dresses are received. These dresses are set aside for recycle through the Designer’s Challenge! We invite local seamstresses/designers to be paired with our selected models to volunteer their time and talents in participating in the challenge by redesigning and recreating outdated dresses into marketable, appealing fashion for their selected model. Each team will select one or two dresses of their choice from our collection during our Meet & Greet on January 8, 2015. The designer is given approximately four weeks to work on the project with the model’s input, prior to revealing their unique creation live on stage before judges at the event on February 5, 2015. The community and audience are given opportunity to weigh in on “People’s Choice” voting for their favorite designer and favorite “Top Model” by voting with $1 votes. Multiple votes are encouraged to be cast at the same time. Voting will open online at www.friendsofadvantage.org in January. Additionally, a “Parade of Dresses” will be modeled by the local Homecoming Queens and representatives within the ten counties in which we serve, offering a sneak peak of some of the beautiful new and gently used dresses that will be offered during the March adDRESS a Need SALE. We invite you to come out for an evening of fabulous entertainment at the Designer’s Challenge & Top Model Competition and see for yourself just how talented our locals are and catch a glimpse of some of the amazing dresses we will offer at the sale!
