LEARNING FASHION DESIGN from CONCEPT to CREATION to CATWALK!
Inspired by the artwork in the “Andy Warhol: Endangered Species” exhibition, "Project Fashion Show,” a FREE program for grades 9-12 high school students, connects the dots (and spots and stripes!) between art and awareness about wildlife conservation.
In collaboration with local fabric & fashion design artists Lily Scalf and Aareon Boyd, and Peoria Zoo and Wildlife Prairie Park wildlife experts, 10 teams of students grades 9-12 will compete for the ultimate prize and runway reveal!
