If you're in the Midwest, enjoy altering up your clothes, and are competitive, I urge you to take part in Swap-O-Rama-Rama. Anyone from students to professional designers may enter to show their collection off at the REmake Fashion Show to be held on 3/19/10. So Project Runway... The rules are: at least 50-percent of each creation must be upcycled/repurposed. Deadline to submit is 2/28/20. For more information go to http://web.mac.com/katie.hawkey/Swap-O-Rama-Rama/Home.html.
Bonus points: Even if you make something and it does not go down the runway you can still submit it to Altered Couture! Next deadline: 3/15/10.
