As we head into our fifth year, we are looking for six designers to be featured in our Skirts Installation at the 2017 SkirtsAfire herArts Festival. The theme for this year’s competition is ‘A Skirt From Her Closet’ and all skirts must be constructed from found up-cycled materials. The six chosen designers will compete for the title of Official Festival Skirt. All six skirts will then be displayed for the duration of the festival in the Cabaret Space located in the Alberta Avenue Community League, March 2-12, 2017.
