“Fashion Design to the Rescue”
Wham! Pow! Bam! Take a cue from the superheroes or supervillains found in cartoons, movies and comic books to create your own original design. Whether your inspiration comes from a person with phenomenal powers fighting for noble causes, their masked sidekick, or a criminal archenemy wreaking havoc on humanity, let their colorful and flashy costumes, valorous heroism, and superhuman traits be the stimulus to your extraordinary blueprint to rescuing the world of fashion.
Awards. The top five placing contestants in each category/age division will be recognized.
