It's almost time for the 2018 Kinetic Kouture: Fashion with a RE-Purpose fashion show and friendly arts competition! This ongoing, annual collaboration between Kinetic Universe and the Morris Graves Museum of Art benefits both organizations, and encourages creative reuse while showcasing amazing creativity.

How to enter: we will post an online entry form soon! You can also plan to arrive at 8:30 and fill out an entry form. Designers can enter multiple creations/ outfits. The show moves quickly though, so please plan to have one model per outfit. 

Criteria for judging: The goal is to use as much recycled material that is SAVED from the landfill as possible!
