Description/Objectives:
Fashion Show: To recognize 4-H members who have excelled in clothing projects and exhibit skills in the application of knowledge of fibers and fabrics to wardrobe selection, clothing construction, or comparison shopping, fashion interpretation and understanding of style, good grooming and poise in front of others, and modeling and presentation of themselves and their garments.

Natural Fiber (Seniors Only):  The purpose of the Fashion Show Natural Fiber Contest is an opportunity for 4-H members to exhibit the skills learned related to Cotton and Wool/Mohair. To recognize 4-H members who do outstanding work in a clothing project that includes the study of cotton or wool, and mohair.

Fashion Storyboard:  The purpose of the 4-H Fashion Storyboard contest is to give 4-H members an opportunity to create a storyboard of their original design. It also provides the members an opportunity to gain knowledge of the career responsibilities of a fashion designer and illustrator, enhance creativity and originality, and develop visual communication skills.

Trashion Show:  The Trashion Show provides an opportunity for 4-H members to use their design skills to create and exhibit a recycled/reused garment created from items that would otherwise be thrown in the trash. It also recognizes 4-H members who do outstanding work in a clothing project.

Duds to Dazzle: The Texas 4-H Duds to Dazzle Clothing & Textile Competition utilizes the knowledge and skills learned in the project, while increasing awareness of the impact of the clothing and textile industry on the environment, specifically the waste stream. In the competition, teams of 4-H members will redesign and repurpose discarded garments or textiles into new, viable consumer products.
