SHIFT: An experiment in fashion design was an evening for the books!

It was more than a runway show. It was a community celebration. It was the start of a new tradition.

On Thursday, September 21, 2017 SHIFT: An experiment in fashion design brought together some of the region’s most innovative design thinkers to celebrate equitable education and sustainable fashion and benefit our arts integration program The Right Brain Initiative.

Nineteen novice and experienced designers alike debuted garments made from recycled materials and found objects in effort to win three cash prizes and the People’s Choice Award. The energy of the runway show extended into our silent auction and paddle raise, contributing to a final net income of nearly $25,000 raised for The Right Brain Initiative.
