In order to join Catwalk, participants must be school aged students (we recommend 6th-12th grade), be able to commit to the below dates, and be willing to be creative and work hard. Once enrolled in the Catwalk program we will have a series of meetings and opportunities for studio time at Resource Depot. One-on-one designer meetings with our teaching artist(s) are offered on first-come/first-serve basis during these studio times for guidance. We will also have virtual resources to help students in the process.
We encourage creative thinking and an open mind. Outfits must be made of at least 50% upcycled materials, which can include working from existing/altered pieces of clothing as a base for their design. Students do not have to make a whole outfit, they can make part of an outfit. Students can make outfits for themselves to model or use someone else as their model.
We require students to be there for three mandatory meetings and the runway/exhibition events. If a student is comfortable with their making skills, they do not have to attend the studio times and they can make from home. While all students will be given time to work here during studio time, students must be able to work at home on some aspects of their outfit to ensure completion. If students only work during studio time and not on their own, it will be difficult for them to finish by the Runway Show Event.
Please look through the dates below before applying as this program

Ready to commit and be creative? Please complete the form below. You will be asked to pay for a $25 dollar program fee after the form is filled out. If you wish to have a fee waiver form, please email Kelsey before you fill out the form.
No other fees will apply to this program, but if a student requires items for their outfit that we do not have, the parents/guardian may need to purchase items outside of Resource Depot. We will do our best to have what the students need.
