3S Artspace, Recovergirl, and Goodwill of Northern New England are joining forces to promote regional designers and sustainable fashion. Together, they are presenting a design style competition on March 23 and 24, 2018 at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth, NH.  Designers will be challenged to upcycle secondhand clothing provided by Goodwill into a creative, gala-worthy outfit over two days, and with the support of community models, show their results on the catwalk on Saturday night. Designers will be judged on execution, creative reuse of materials, and styling.

The two days of intense design and sewing will culminate with a live runway show and gala event on Saturday, March 24th.  The public event will feature VIP judges, community models, tasty treats, and cash prizes.  Public voting will be included!  Cash prizes, provided by Saltwater Collective of Portsmouth, NH, will be awarded to the top three designers (First: $1,500, Second: $1,000, Third: $500).
