Local Cloth: Project Handmade 2014 

Deadline: June 15, 2014 (ONLINE)

Local Cloth: Project Handmade 2014

Local Cloth Inc.

Asheville, NC 

September 2014

Local Cloth Inc. will host its second regional wearable-art fashion show and artist showcase September 2014 in downtown Asheville, NC. Textile artists and fashion designers within a 100-mile radius of Asheville are invited to create garments and ensembles following the theme of Project Handmade 2014: Texture & Movement. Accepted artists who are members in good standing of Local Cloth will be invited to display and/or sell work at a reception immediately following the fashion show.

Any type of textile or fiber art technique may be used in the creation of Project Handmade entries, including weaving, sewing, knitting, felting, dying, printing, etc. The focus of the juried runway show is locally produced and/or re-purposed materials. Collaborations among different members of the regional fiber art supply chain are encouraged. Although qualifying garments are not required to include 100% local materials, a cash prize will be awarded for the best use of local fiber and/or resources. Project Handmade entries must have been completed since October 2012.

Individual artists, or collaborating teams, may enter up to five garments or ensembles. All entries must be complete looks. Artists who specialize in fashion accessories are eligible, but should collaborate with other local artists or designers to dress the models fully in locally handmade garments. An artist may enter as both an individual and a collaborator, but separate entries, and separate entry fees, are required.

Entries will be judged based on digital images of the garments intended for the show.

Artist Showcase: Each accepted artist who is a member in good standing of Local Cloth Inc. will be invited to display and/or sell Project Handmade or other work at a reception immediately following the fashion show for no additional fee. Accepted artists must pay 2014 Local Cloth dues by Aug 10, 2014, to participate in the showcase.
