Threads: Everyone has a story to tell.
The Weisman Art Museum will host its second design competition in partnership with the U of M College of Design Wednesday, April 24 at 7:30pm.

Ten finalists from the U of M's apparel design program have been selected to go head to head as they send original garments down the runway. Student designers were asked to interpret Laylah Ali's Greenheads Series into a ready-for-the-runway garment that narrates personal experiences and stories. The designs have been constructed utilizing nontraditional materials, sculptural shaping, and innovative surface textures. Hair and makeup styling, provided by Juut Salonspa, will complete the looks.

The runway show will be juried by five local art, fashion, and design insiders:

   Carolyn Halliday, textile artist
   Caroline Hayden, apparel designer
   Ellen Roeder, costume designer at Tulle and Dye
   Sara Rogers, the Mall of America's style expert
   Nate Young, multimedia artist

Twin Cities trend expert and media maven Grant Whittaker will emcee the event.

Designs will be judged not only on aesthetic merit, but also on interpretation of the theme and articulation of the designer's perspective and identity. A package of covetable prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place winners, as well as two honorable mentions.

In addition to the runway show and Q&A sessions with each designer, the event will also feature a dance performance by House of John Mark, an exclusive WAM member lounge, and a cash bar for all attendees.

Thank you to our generous sponsors and collaborators: WAM Collective, Radio K, Minnesota Daily, Juut Salonspa, Big Top Liquors, UMN College of Design, FAB.
