So, instead of dusting off a shop bought outfit, we want you to get creative and make something spectacular! It can be something you have made before that is suitable as evening wear/occasion wear or something new you can make from scratch.
We want to encourage everyone to take part and get creative – any age, all abilities, on your own or anyone in your support bubble, professionals and amateurs, students and families. You can use any materials you like – it doesn’t have to be fabric; think of how you can use everyday items you find around your house, like paper, plastic bags or cardboard.
There will be two winners in the competition, one amateur and one professional. Professionals are classed as people who are professionally employed in fashion, costume or design and Amateurs are everyone else.
The competition will be judged by Mary Lamb, former BBC Costumier and Head of Liverpool based Costume and Fashion production space fabricationstudios.
During January and February competition judge – Mary will take over our Instagram account to share hints and tips on getting started and some inspirational ideas and creations. You can get some inspiration from her Pinterest page here.
So what are you waiting for? Get out your scissors, needles and thread or glue gun and get making! You can enter via Liverpool City Region’s Instagram account below. But hurry the competition closes on 12th February 2021.
