There are two ways to participate:
Come as a creator:
Make something to wear on the catwalk. If you don’t want to wear it, then find someone who will wear it for you! We understand that sometimes creative genius is not extroverted. Your creation must be recycled, upcycled, repurposed reclaimed – you can use new thread in your sewing machine, but that is all the new stuff you can add!!! Take apart old clothes, cut up sheets and curtains… use paper, plastic, hubcaps or an old cheese grater… anything goes!
Categories for prizes include high fashion, most creative, environmental themes, anything but textiles, op-shop spectacular and audience favourite.
Entrants will be divided into three age categories: adults, 12-18 and under twelves.
It is $5 to enter and entries must be registered by Wed 11th September – email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Creators do not have to purchase a ticket to enter – your registration as a creator is your ticket in.
Come as an audience member:
Come along on the day just to watch and have fun. There will be food and drinks available for purchase, a huge rummage sale… you will be able to purchase an extra large Boomerang Bag and for just $10 can fill it to the brim with clothes from the pile. There is also a fun workshop run by artist Eliza Jane Gilchrist – making headpieces out of recycled cardboard. The Planet Protectors will be raising money to plant one trillion trees to stop climate change and Boomerang Bags will have reusable, upcycled cloth bags for sale as well. Pl ease bring cash!
Tickets are $10 (its cheap as chips so no concessions or kids prices)
Tickets available online until Friday 13th September. Then tickets on the door only.
We invite you to donate old clothes to our huge rummage sale!! Bring as much clothing and accessories as you want to get rid of (as long as they are clean and in good nick) to the MASG office by Friday 13th September. Call Allie on 0416 145 899 to organise drop off.
This Fashion Parade is a major fundraiser for MASG so please come along and bring all your friends. We will have tables set up for people to sit at and enjoy the festivities. Our MC will describe each creation as it is revealed with fun music to dance to as we watch our creators strut their stuff on the catwalk. The three expert judges will give feedback and award prizes.
