Calling all artists! We invite you to partake of a very special challenge. Make a piece of clothing–without using traditional clothing material. Your outfit should consist of a maximum of 25% fabric, the rest being nontraditional materials. You can use traditional clothing fasteners, such as zippers, snaps, buttons. The unique design will walk down the runway in a spectacular fashion show and the most inventive outfit that maximizes the conceptual materials with the greatest inventiveness will win a special distinction.
