fantasy meets runway.


Your challenge for this week is to get your inspiration from a literary character or passage from a book. Choose from the list below or pick one of your own.

This is a FASHION DESIGN competition so don’t make me a snow white costume. Your garment needs to be high fashion with a flare of inspiration from your favorite character. Bring a book or passage to the show and be prepared to tell us why you made the choices you did.

Garth from Shakespeare and Co will be here next week to help us judge your garment.

You can use anything you want for supplies and we encourage the use of non-traditional materials, you’ll have $30 at Selvedge to spend in addition to whatever else you decide to use.
Good luck!

Some ideas:
Dorothy Gale (The Wizard of Oz)
Daisy Buchanan (The Great Gatsby)
Pussy Galore (Goldfinger)
Blanche Dubois (A Streetcar Named Desire)
Alice (and Wonderland)
Ophelia (Hamlet)
Hermione (Harry Potter)
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Lord of the Rings
