On Sunday, Aug 19 from 12 - 3 p.m., one of Festival of Arts’ most fun and anticipated events will take place, the Festival Runway Fashion show, during which the artists literally strut their stuff – the stuff they have imaginatively put together to create amazing fashion-forward outfits, a la Project Runway.

The event is included with $15 Festival admission. Limited seating is available in a reserved section for $25 per person (includes Festival admission).

The Festival of Arts is known for putting on truly unique and imaginative events, and this summer Festival artists are making fashion their medium at the Festival Runway Fashion Show.

See who’s in and who’s out this year as Festival artists compete to create the most inspired couture using reclaimed, reused, or recycled materials. 

Selecting the winners will be a panel of fashion experts including Kaye Spilker (Curator of Costumes & Textiles at LACMA), Alex Jaeger (Costume Designer) and Nelson Coates (Production Designer).
