Introducing Mount Mary’s NEW fashion competition!



Here’s your chance to express yourself!

Create one or all of the projects that showcase your unique vision.

Using mostly found and upcycled materials, you’ll stitch, staple, tape or glue your way to a one-of-a-kind project.

Throughout the creative process and construction of your project, Mount Mary Fashion faculty will be there to answer your questions so nothing holds you back from creating something that’s yours alone!


  • WHAT: Choose one or more of the project options and create something that is Uniquely YOURS!
  • WHO: Open to students grades 8-12; may work individually or in teams of two.
  • WHEN: Contest begins October 13, 2023 and final projects are due by midnight January 31, 2024.
  • HOW: At least 80% of materials used must be recycled, secondhand or gently used. Contestants may request a free bundle of fabric, gently used garments or patterns from Mount Mary, if desired. Total budget must not exceed $60.
  • ETC: Winning projects will be featured in the 2024 Mount Mary University student showcase and fashion show, will receive tickets to the show and full or partial scholarships to the 2024 Summer Fashion Academy at Mount Mary.
