WHAT: The runway at FusionFest will come alive with a kaleidoscope of fashion from around the world, reflecting the diverse origins and heritages of our community.
There are two ways to wear your culture and share your fashion story:
Heritage Showcase: Walk the runway in an outfit representing your heritage.
Participants are responsible to supply their own model and provide hair and makeup.
There will be a total of 9 fashion shows over the two-day festival, and you must participate in a minimum of 3 shows.
Fusion Contest: Fashion Designers are invited to create an original design that blends elements from different parts of the world for a chance to win $1,000.
Designs must be 100% original materials, no pre-made scarfs or t-shirts, for example. The only non-original parts of your design that are permitted are shoes and accessories.
