About the event


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

During the show, designers and design teams will debut runway garments made from found and nontraditional materials. Each piece will display inventive form, style and a creative juxtaposition—shifting the materials from their original form into wearable couture.

In the end, a panel of local celebrity judges will award several prizes and one designer, or design team, will be named Best in Show! Come for the fashion, stay for the reception-style fusion fare, tasty adult libations, and exciting performances as we celebrate The Right Brain Initiative bringing arts integration into K-8 schools!
