Trashion Fashion

TRASHION FASHION

Superintendent:

Francie Hansen
Location: Main Stage, Sunday @ 4 pm

You promised that this was your year, so go out there and strut your stuff! This contest is all about having FUN! So let your imagination go. Be wildly inventive, "think outside of the recycle bin," and try another persona on for size. Please do remember, though, that this is a family show and there will be children in the audience. Use your best judgment and keep age-appropriateness in mind. The San Juan County Fair Board retains the right to refuse the entry if it is deemed inappropriate.

ELIGIBILITY:
The contest is open to all San Juan County residents. Questions? Call 360-378-4310.

RULES:
  1. Applicants are invited to create wearable artwork/fashion using recycled, repurposed, reused and/or found materials. Pieces must be durable enough for wearing during the show. Vintage or used clothing will not be accepted unless it has been significantly repurposed and redesigned into something substantially "new."
  2. Collaborations are allowed.
  3. To be eligible for the show, your completed entry form must be received in the Parks & Fair Administration Office (alongside the Main Building just inside the Main Entrance) by 6 pm, Monday, August 12th. *The first 3 people registered get a prize!*
  4. All entrants or models of the entry must attend the Walk-Thru Rehearsal, Monday, August 12th, 6:00 pm at the Main Stage, by the Main entrance on Argyle Ave. You must attend the rehearsal! The actual Trashion Fashion show is on Sunday, August 18th at 4:00 pm on the Main Stage. *If you do not want to model your entry, you are encouraged to find a model. Please let us know if you need assistance with this - we can find one for you in a pinch.*
DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
Our venue is quite small, and backstage is very limited. There are stairs to navigate, and there may be a "runway" to navigate. You may even want to consider a mobile entry (i.e. on a skateboard, unicycle or stilts). It is a good idea to keep these things in mind when designing your entry.
Here are some ideas:
  • Create an outfit you could wear again. (Good design, well-sewn, etc.)
  • Use those recycled materials!
  • Re-use that trash! (Items that are destined for the landfill)
  • Make something related to the Fair theme - "A Century of Growing: 100 Years at Home"
REGISTER NOW! YOU MAY HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED RIGHT IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD!
