The Princess Project Prom Dress Design Competition

The Princess Project is hosting its fourth annual Princess Project Runway show! It’s a fun fashion event that will raise money for the The Princess Project.

The show features students from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM). The students will demonstrate live, interactive draping and production of a prom dress. Each student chooses the fabric and creates the pattern for the dress. Attendees get to watch the dress creations from start to finish!

The dress draping competition begins at 7 p.m. and lasts about one hour. Each dress will reflect the style and color of current prom dress trends. The ultimate goal: design a dress that is a fabulous, fashionable, must-have garment for today’s high school prom girl.

Our own Jan Bohn (co-owner of Margaret's and couture handling expert) will be a sitting judge in this year’s competition!

Gordana Gehlhausen
The other judges are Gordana Gehlhausen of Project Runway and owner/designer of Goga by Gordana; Elena Han, owner/designer of Va Lena Valentina Couture; and Jodi Kodesh, event emcee from NBC San Diego News.

The night will include a fabulous show and attendees will also be treated to a special menu of cocktails and delicious appetizers. There will be a silent auction with items donated from local businesses.
