Entries open for Catwalk Arts fundraiser

Kaylee Tantrum of Rodney College works on an entry incorporating glass and LED lighting for Catwalk Arts 2017.

Mahurangi College and Warkworth Wellsford Hospice have joined forces to present Catwalk Arts 2017 – a wearable arts show to raise funds for both organisations.

Organisers are seeking creative designers to enter their wearable arts, which will be featured at three shows held in the Mahurangi College Hall on October 13 and 14.

There are five categories available for designers to enter. These are: Open (for those aged 20 and older); Youth (ages 15-19); Creative Creatures (children under 14); Wearable Advertising and Bling it On.

More than $4,000 is up for grabs in prize money for category and special awards winners.

Organisers are also interested to hear from businesses and individuals willing to sponsor more prizes.

Judges will look for originality, technical skill in garment construction, stage presence of catwalk models and overall visual effect.

The entry fee is $10 for individuals and non-profit groups and $25 for businesses.

Entries close on August 31.

Money raised from the event will go toward meeting hospice operating expenses and shade and shelter projects around Mahurangi College.
