Help build our future restaurant and hospitality workforce

Meet our 2020 Fashion Designers

Fashion design has rarely been so delectable.

The challenge to our volunteer fashion designers is simple: They have one month to design and build a fashion show entry ... but at least ten percent of what their model wears on the runway must come out of a restaurant sponsor that is paired with them. This can be whatever our designers and their restaurant partners negotiate to work with, whether consumable or not.

Unlike traditional fashion shows where models race down the runway, this very theatrical presentation of our Food in Fashion creations is slower, savored, and pumped-up by the song of the designer's choice.

During the show each fashion will be judged by a panel in the audience and prizes will be awarded to the top designers.
