How It Works
Each team designs one (1) unique fashion to be presented on the runway. Designs may be for men or women and are not limited to dresses. Paper is provided by Kelly Spicers and the paper mills they represent at no charge and can be written on, printed on, painted on, dyed, manipulated, etc. Binding techniques such as sewing, glue, tape, and wire are allowed. Teams may use their own model or you may use one of our professional models for free (highly suggested). Fashions must abide by the 90% paper rule to be eligible for competition. A panel of judges will judge each fashion and category winners will be recognized with individual recognition, followed by trophies also constructed of paper. Design teams will be provided with guidelines and judging criteria.
