Popular event outgrows venue, invites youth applicants countywideApril 17, 2013 7pm Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium Tickets
For several years, students at Mission Hill Middle School have created unique fashion pieces from repurposed materials. The event became so popular among students and community members, that it has exceeded the capacity of the school gym.
Art teacher Kathleen Crocetti sought support from the Santa Cruz Education Foundation, the organizers of fashionART Santa Cruz and others to move to the Civic Auditorium and expand participation to young designers throughout the county.
Local designers and fabric stores have stepped up to advise entrants, help with sewing and construction and runway coaching. One ensemble will be selected for participation in the fashionART Santa Cruz show in September. The top three finishers will receive cash prizes.
The Santa Cruz Education Foundation is proud to be a sponsor of fashionTEEN Santa Cruz.
