Costume Drama: A Fashion Show 2020
August 8, 2020
Saturday at 7:30 pm
Costume Drama: A Fashion Show is an eclectic evening of inventive fashion that has quickly become one of the highlights of the Asheville event calendar. Local designers compete for cash prizes in this Project Runway-esque show, with proceeds from ticket sales to benefit the theatre.
This year’s Costume Drama will be filmed and released as a pay-per-view event. Tickets and more information will be available soon!
Because of the extraordinary circumstances in which we find ourselves this year, designers will each create a garment from the unconventional materials to which they have access. Instead of winning a material category this year, all designs will be eligible to win a design category:
- Best Concept or Story (the inspiration behind the piece and how the piece conveys that story)
- Best Unexpected Material
- Best Creativity
- Best Composition (garment, accessories, styling)
The Best in Show winner will be chosen from these 4 designs. As in years past, Best in Show will receive a $500 prize, and the other 3 winners will each receive a $250 prize.
