The purpose of this event is to show that being sustainable does not have to be all doom and gloom, sacrifice or inconvenience. Not everyone can or will want to design clothing, but we all have the ability to be creative and think about new ways to reuse and transform items that may typically be considered waste. The 2014 show adding thrift store styling categories to the original design categories.

Outfits are judged on creativity, craftsmanship, environmental consciousness, and presentation. In addition to the judged categories, the audience has the opportunity to vote for Audience Choice Awards for Best Design and Best Model.

 For the 2014 show, we continued the Original Design categories. Again, designers were given the challenge of creating outfits made out of at least 75% reclaimed, reused, recycled, or organic materials. They were allowed a $5 budget for supplies to make their outfits. We added new “Second Hand Stylings” categories this year. The stylists were given a $20 budget and were only allowed to shop at thrift stores. For the Make It Work Challenge, participants had to select and incorporate two thrifted items out of a collection picked out by the planning committee.
