What: Modified Style is an annual Fundraiser Fashion Show featuring garments made by local artists out of fabric scrap material that benefits local nonprofits.
Each entrant receives a bag full of scraps and has one month to fabricate a wearable creation. Garments are then worn by artist-provided models and auctioned off to raise funds for a local nonprofit. This year, proceeds will benefit Sisters of the Road, Out to Pasture Farm Sanctuary and Children's Healing Arts Project (CHAP).
When: Deadline to sign up is February 15th. Bags of fabric will be available for pick up from February 19th through February 26th at Modern Domestic. An image of finished creation, blurb and model name are due April 1st. A dress rehearsal will be April 27th, and the full Fundraiser Fashion Show is scheduled for May 1st, 2011.
Where: This year's Modified Style Fundraiser Fashion Show will be held at Disjecta, in the Kenton neighborhood.
Who: Entrants need only have "a creative urge of desire to learn" how to sew.Enter in either the amateur category (no sewing experience necessary) or as a professional (if you have ever sold a garment). Modified Style requests a $25 contribution from amateurs and a $40 contribution from professionals to cover the costs of the event.
