You know what they say — one man's trash is another man's treasure. And that couldn't be more true when it comes to the eighth annual Curbside Couture fashion show.
The Clinton Presidential Center will host Arkansas' largest "green" fashion show full of recycled and up-cycled designs on Sunday, April 28. The program invites Arkansas students in third through 12th grades to apply their creativity and technical skills to create wearable designs made from recycled material.
Each year, around 200 student designers from more than 20 Arkansas schools participate, and more than 400 attend the runway show. Winning designs are chosen by a panel of jurors, and winning designers are awarded a cash prize.
Students also have the opportunity to attend a mentoring session with acclaimed fashion designers, including Korto Momolu, who was first runner-up in the fifth season of "Project Runway," and the Clinton Center’s own Connie Fails.
The student mentoring session will take place on March 9 from 9:30 a.m. - noon. During the week of April 14, the judges will choose the designs to be featured in the Curbside Couture fashion show.
