PCC students to hold "no fashion" fashion show

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - You're not likely to see supermodels wearing outfits thrown together in two hours, much less made out of things like tin foil, ribbons, or food.

That's the challenge of a contest coming up later this month at Pima Community College's downtown campus.  A student club, Fashion Force – The force of good, is sponsoring the "No Fashion – Fashion Show" on November 22 as a club fundraiser.

The contest is open to local high school students, who will be given a box of various items to create a garment. The challenge is to create a look with these items. The look will be modeled on a runway, and the garments rated by a panel of judges from the local fashion industry.

The cost to enter is $7 per student or $20 per group of no more than four students. The event will be held in the Amethyst Room, with preparations beginning at 3 p.m. and the show at 6:30 p.m.

The prizes include a $500 scholarship to Pima, a new Singer sewing machine and gift cards.

The club is seeking donations of pipe cleaners, aluminum foil, sewing kits, scissors and glue for the event. If you have any questions, are interested in making a donation, or want to register an individual or a team, email or phone Charlette Padilla at ctpadilla@pima.edu or call (520) 206-7206.
