State 4-H Fashion Revue 2020 is a Success
Pivoting to a virtual platform, the State 4-H Fashion Revue was held this past Saturday, October 10th. The annual contest showcases youth skills in sewing, knitting, crochet and consumer decision making. Youth ages 8 to 18 who are involved in a Missouri 4-H program were eligible to compete.
This year, Krayleigh Power, member of the Perry Pioneers 4-H Club competed alongside 41 other youth, representing 19 counties.
The State 4-H Fashion Revue creates a unique opportunity for youth to be creative, express themselves and learn to communicate their creativity in a variety of ways. The Fashion Show was a highlight of the day. Participants enjoyed modeling their garments for the camera from the comfort of their own homes.
As with all 4-H programs, the State 4-H Fashion Revue was all about learning new things. Professional workshops were led by Teisha Barber, President of Kansas City Fashion Week; Amy Johnson, Designer and Owner of Aimz Designs; Bethany Kay, Owner of Hello Belle Co.; Conni Douvier, North Central Missouri Project Linus Chapter Coordinator; and Mahima, Nicole and Joohye, members of the Textile and Apparel Management Graduate Student Association at the University of Missouri.
Krayleigh represented Ralls County in fine fashion as she was awarded First Place in the Senior Division of the Constructed Dressy Category.
