CALL TO ARTISTS MODERN MAKERS EXHIBITIONS 2016
Style + Sustainability GALA with Urban Blooms
Kicking off the Uptown Innovation District, our largest event of the year will bring together a wide ranging audience to look at sustainability and the city. Modern Makers has partnered with Urban Blooms, who build green walls out of living plants, to throw the most sustainable and collaborative fashion experience Cincinnati has ever seen! We welcome you to explore, network, shop, eat and dance in our 100,000 sq ft industrial space showcasing a catwalk made out of moss, skatepark, vendor tables, food trucks and living walls!!
Feature pieces of “living” clothing. There is only one rule to abide by and that is, each design must incorporate plants someway and somehow into the majority of the work (e.g. flowers, moss, ivy, ferns, etc.). In addition to a fashion show, we also invite local designers to set up vending booths to sell and showcase their products. This is a multigenerational collaboration event- maximizing social and environmental benefits!
Each look will be shown in a catwalk fashion show as the highlight of the evening.
Upon acceptance, designers will be provided with a material + creative stipend.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: JULY 31
EVENT DATE: SEPT 24
