Fashion Show Info for CNCH 2012

Posted By DLaVallee on August 23, 2011

Plans for the “ Tradition/Innovation” Fashion Show at CNCH 2012 are coming together!  As the committee works to put on a great show for us, now is the time to start planning your entries.  The theme encourages creativity – How can you innovate on a traditional technique?  What traditional technique do you want to showcase in a contemporary garment?  How do tradition and innovation work together in one piece?  The ideas are endless!   Experiment with new fibers, new (to you) structures, or just weave what you weave best – the possibilities are endless.

Fashion Show entries will be judged by Jane Foster and Daryl Lancaster.  Jane is a haute couture seamstress and teacher from Walnut Creek, California.  Daryl is a well-known weaver and master seamstress from New Jersey.  She will also be teaching at CNCH 2012.  Check out her website at  www.daryllancaster.com/index.html.

Each individual is allowed three entries, and an ensemble counts as just one entry.  Entries will be modeled at the Fashion Show on Friday evening, May 18 during the conference, and then will be hung in the Fashion Show Gallery for the duration of the conference.  Registration forms and entry details will be in the registration booklet and online at the CNCH.org site in late September.
