What's Happening Now
2017 STATE FASHION REVUE UPDATE
Theme: "The Road to Fashion"
Date: May 27, 2017 at UC Davis
Categories for State Fashion Revue:
Entry categories for 2017 State Fashion Revue will be Traditional, Consumer Science Purchased, Upcycled, Knit Challenge and Stripe/Print/Plaid Challenge.
Traditional: The focus is to showcase the member's sewing skills and ability to coordinate an outfit. Must be sewn as part of the member's Clothing & Textiles project.
Consumer Science Purchased: has a $40.00 limit, for everything showing including shoes, jewelry and accessories, but not sales tax. Receipts for all items showing are required, with purchases made during the 2016-2017 4-H year. There is no project requirement, which means that any 4-H member may enter this category.
Upcycled: This category involves taking one or more existing garment and turning it into a completely new, different, and wearable garment. Add an accessory handmade by the participant. Additional fabrics, trim and supples may be used during the construction process. The upcycled garment must be sewn as part of the member's Clothing & Textiles project. Additional upcycled and/or sewn garments are encouraged to complete the outfit. A “before” photograph showing the original garment(s) is required. This is not an alteration such as a large dress taken in to fit a smaller person that still retains the same lines. It is where the garment has been cut apart and remade into a new garment that looks different. The emphasis is on the transition of the garment. (No change from 2016)
Knit Challenge: Construct an entire wearable garment out of knit fabric. Any fabric content is allowed (cotton, polyester, wool, rayon, blend, etc.) and any type of knit (single knit, double knit, rib knit). This is not a garment that is hand-knit; it is a garment that is sewn, serged, or otherwise constructed using fabric. In designing and constructing the garment, consider how the stretch of knit fabric affects the fit and the opportunity to learn new techniques for seaming, hemming and edge finishes. Include handmade or purchased garments and items to complete the outfit. Open to all 4-H members with no project requirement. (New for 2017)
Stripe/Print/Plaid Challenge: Choose any two of the three fabric designs (stripe, print, and plaid) and incorporate them into one or more sewn garments. If one garment is sewn, it must include 2 of the 3 choices (ex: a shirt containing print and plaid). If multiple garments are sewn, the 2 choices can be in one garment (ex: print and plaid shirt), more than one garment (ex: print and plaid shirt and skirt), or one garment each (ex: print shirt and striped pants). The addition of other fabric is allowed (ex: solids, other prints/stripes/plaids, etc.). For this category, polka dots are considered a print even if the dots appear to be in straight lines. A plaid has a pattern of multi-color horizontal stripes intersecting with multi-color vertical stripes. Checked fabrics like gingham and buffalo checks as well as houndstooth designs are considered plaids. Besides the construction techniques for stripes and plaids, consider the placement of prints, harmonious combination of fabrics in design of the outfit and current style trends. Include handmade or purchased garments and items to complete the outfit. The entry must be created by the member as part of the 4-H Clothing & Textiles project. (New for 2017)
For all entries, the outfit must be produced and modeled by the individual member. The outfit must meet SFR modesty guidelines.
A member may only qualify to enter one outfit at SFR.
