Artists/designers wanted. Press release here:

Calling all local artists and designers!

Back for its third year, the celebrated Costume Drama (a fashion show/benefit for Asheville Community Theatre), is looking to add some new talent to its extraordinary cast of competitors. The Project Runway-style show is a runway face-off, where artists compete for a cash prize and the title of “Asheville’s Best in Show Designer” with wearable art in designated categories.

This year’s categories are: PAPER, NATURE, UPCYCLED/RECYCLED MATERIAL, and TRANSFORMATION (which includes any garment that begins as one thing and becomes something else on the runway). Models, hair/makeup services and professional photography will be provided to all participants. Registration is free, but only 10 submissions will be accepted in each category, so space is extremely limited.

Winners are selected by the audience. Garments can be supported with any kind of material as long as long as it is completely concealed by the designated category material. Fashion experience is not required. Artists of all mediums are encouraged to apply.

The show is July 7th at 7:30pm at Asheville Community Theatre.
