2017 Fiesta of Fashion Clothing Revue

Youth from all over the county participated in the 2017 Buffalo County Fair Clothing Revue.

The 2017 Buffalo County Fair Clothing Revue, Fiesta of Fashion, was held on June 19, at the Roger Marten Community Center in Mondovi. The 4-H Clothing Project is an opportunity for youth to create and sew their own clothing as well as have their garments evaluated by a qualified judge. At the Clothing Revue, the youth’s projects are judged on difficulty, fit, overall appearance, and fabric and pattern selection. This experience is an opportunity for youth to learn techniques for sewing clothing and developing life skills such as consumerism, goal setting, planning and organization skills. Fifteen youth participants, with twenty-five exhibits, were judged in twenty lots, and four different age classes at the event. Abby George and Rachel Hovey taught younger members modeling tips for a style show. The final event of the evening was the style show, “Fiesta of Fashion.” The judge for the judging event was Fay Passow. The Clothing Revue Project members would like to give a special thank you to the Marten Center for holding the event, Judge Fay Passow for coming and providing feedback, and to the volunteers that help the young members sew their own garments.
