Fashion Revue

Event Overview and Purpose: 

Fashion Revue is an event for youth who are in Clothing & Textiles, Quilting, and Consumer Science projects.  This is an opportunity for youth to have the products which they have made evaluated by members of the sewing community or industry.  Not only do youth get evaluated, they get to show off their products to the other youth and 4-H Community during the Fashion Show.  To help the youth prepare and get ready for the event, the Chico Beauty College comes and does hair, nails, and make-up for youth who want it. 

This event is hosted by the Manzanita 4-H Club.

 – Take one or more existing garments and turn them into a new, different, and wearable garment. Additional fabrics, trim and supplies may be used during the construction process. Additional upcycled and/or sewn garments are encouraged to complete the outfit. A "before" and "after" photograph of the garment(s) is required. This is not an alteration - such as a large dress taken in to fit a smaller person that still retains the same lines. It is where the garment has been cut apart and remade into a new garment that looks different. The emphasis is on the transition of the garment. The outfit entered in the Upcycled category must include an accessory of your choice, handmade by the participant.

Stripe/Print/Plaid Challenge 
– Choose any two of the three fabric designs (stripe, print, and plaid) and incorporate them into one or more sewn garments. If one garment is sewn, it must include 2 of the 3 choices (ex: a shirt containing print and plaid). If multiple garments are sewn, the 2 choices can be in one garment (ex: print and plaid shirt), more than one garment (ex: print and plaid shirt and skirt), or one garment each (ex: print shirt and striped pants). The addition of other fabric is allowed (ex: solids, other prints/stripes/plaids, etc.). For this category, polka dots are considered a print even if the dots appear to be in straight lines.  A plaid has a pattern of multi-color horizontal stripes intersecting with multi-color vertical stripes.  Checked fabrics like gingham and buffalo checks as well as houndstooth designs are considered plaids. Besides the construction techniques for stripes and plaids, consider the placement of prints, harmonious combination of fabrics in design of the outfit and current style trends. Include handmade or purchased garments and items to complete the outfit.

Knit Challenge
 – Construct an entire wearable garment out of knit fabric. Any fabric content is allowed (cotton, polyester, wool, rayon, blend, etc.) and any type of knit (single knit, double knit, rib knit). This is not a garment that is hand-knit; it is a garment that is sewn, serged, or otherwise constructed using fabric. In designing and constructing the garment, consider how the stretch of knit fabric affects the fit and the opportunity to learn new techniques for seaming, hemming and edge finishes. Include handmade or purchased garments and items to complete the outfit.
