This fashion show encourages youth to improve their sewing skills, up their business and merchandising skills, and apply themselves to rethinking and recycling in an artful and creative way. With partnerships between Kendall County youth nonprofits, Girl with Grit (girlwithgrit.com) and Come and Make It! (comeandmakeit.org), youth will use used fashionable finds, crafting clutter, and sewing staples for an Earth Day Community TRASHIN FASHION youth fashion show.
Every youth in our program of about 300 will be involved in Kendall County! Our Trades Club will build our stage. Our STEM Club will handle lighting and sound. Our designers and artists will hand the design. This is a creative way to celebrate Earth Day!
