SHIFT: An experiment in fashion design

Please join the Regional Arts & Culture Council, along with some of the region’s most innovative design thinkers during our first annual celebration of equitable education, creativity in the classroom, and sustainable fashion benefiting The Right Brain Initiative.

Whether participants are novice creators or seasoned taste-makers, in our first annual runway show we invite both rookies and established designers/design teams alike to debut runway garments made from recycled materials and found objects. Whether glued or stapled, sewn or woven, each piece will display inventive form, unique style and a creative juxtaposition—shifting the materials from their original form into wearable couture.

Come for the fashion, stay for the reception-style fusion fare, tasty adult libations, whimsical post-show dessert and surprise guest performances as we celebrate The Right Brain Initiative’s 10 fantastic years of bringing arts integration into K-8 schools!

Read all about it and grab your tickets (after July 5, 2017) on the event site here.
