SHIFT: Student Fashion Design Program

SHIFT - An experiment in fashion design. Image: Featuring runway participants: a drag performer wearing a flowy, colorful dress, surrounded by young students wearing white shirts, white and black pants, while wearing masks.

Calling all grade 6 to 12 students!

Sharpen your pencils and apply to be a student designer for SH/FT, an experimental fashion show where you can flex your creative design muscles by collaborating and creating alongside of a professional designer mentor.

The two of you will dream up and fabricate a garment made of found and recycled materials. A beloved drag performer will walk your final design down a runway!

The fashion show will take place on April 6 at Holocene in front of a small audience of design teams and Young Audiences supporters. A video recording of the show will be premiered as part of a virtual gala fundraiser on May 19, 2022. This fundraiser will help support Young Audiences to provide more arts education opportunities to young people in our community.
