Cirque du Couture Runway Challenge at Leopold Crystal Ballroom, May 19

Date: May 19, 2017

Time: 7:00 pm

Ragfinery is hosting its annual Upcycle Runway Challenge! Every year brave participants of all skill levels are tasked with transforming castaway materials into runway-ready designs. This exciting event is a celebration of creativity and community as we come together to be inspired, witnessing local artists and craftspeople transforming ordinary into extraordinary. This year’s theme, Cirque du Couture, draws inspiration from the popular performance ensemble, Cirque du Soleil, offering participants fantastical imagery from which to springboard their upcycled designs. With the support of enthusiastic community members, participants will walk the red carpet runway for a panel of local judges, and awards will be presented in six categories on the night of the show. Join us for a lively exhibition of local talent, food, wine, entertainment, and awards, all in the name of raising funds for Ragfinery’s unique nonprofit project.
