Call for Skirt Designers
closes: November 29, 2019

As we head into our eighth year, six designers will be chosen to compete in the competition by designing a Skirt made of found and up-cycled materials. Designs must incorporate the theme of “Her 1940s Skirt” which was chosen because our MainStage Production, The Blue Hour by Michele Vance Hehir, is set in 1947 and the Skirt Design Gallery will be housed in the same theatre. We look forward to all interpretations of this theme, so be creative and let us know your artistic vision in the design application.

Please visit our Call for Skirt Designers for more information and for our design guidelines and application.
