Seeking artists and designers to support a great cause!



Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio’s annual fashion show fundraiser Condom Couture is coming up on October 23, 2013. We’re seeking talented and creative artists and designers to create wearable accessories or small artworks out of condoms for Planned Parenthood to sell the night of the event. The proceeds will raise additional funds to help support education and essential health services for women and men throughout Ohio.  

Each interested designer will receive up to 50 condoms (varied colors, all non-lubricated) to create or decorate their accessories.  Any type of accessory is encouraged–cuffs, fascinators, broaches are just a few we’ve thought of but we know you probably have other great ideas. For your contribution you will receive one SRO ticket to the show on Oct. 23 ($50 value), your name in the event program and on screen during the pre-event slide show.  


 There are a limited number of opportunities to participate so please respond to Esther Hall at by September 27 with your contact information and any other questions you might have.  


This opportunity is limited to 20 artists.

Condoms can be picked up now until October 18th at OAL gallery

Finished pieces will be taken in until October 21st at OAL gallery
