48 hour Second Hand Fashion Competition

We also have a new Fashion Challenge which is all about curating, styling and upcycling second hand goods into a modern fresh outfit using second hand goods from Turning Point Trust.

Curate, Style and upcycle an outfit from second hand clothing. Use your design eye to create an exciting, fresh and modern look out of unwanted goods sourced from the Turning Point Trust at the Historic Village.
You can purchase other second hand accessories to compliment your look.
This is not a wearable art competition, this is a fashion competition.
You are able to sew, cut and embellish your garment but this may not be necessary. We are looking for creative and intelligent styling and repurposing of existing garments.

Prizes will be awarded to the most inventive and thoughtful upcycling and styling of garments.

You MUST collect your second hand items from the Turning Point Trust at 2pm on Wednesday the 2nd of December.
There is an opportunity to upcycle you garments at the ReMaker Space on Thursday between 9:30am and 3:30pm to use their equipment and if you require it.
You must arrive at the ReMaker Space (at Our Place, Willow Street) by 3pm on Friday 4 December ready on the model for the Runway show.
