10th-Annual Young At Art Teen Recycled Fashion Show Surrealism Restyled!
Young At Art Museum’s 10th-Annual Teen Recycled Fashion Show Surrealism Restyled! will be held on Friday, November 13 at 7 p.m. at the Museum, 751 S.W. 121 Avenue in Davie. Proceeds fromSurrealism Restyled! will support Young At Art’s teen leadership and other pioneering programs for underserved and at-risk youth.
Drawing inspiration from the Museum’s current exhibition, Transformation of Echo: World of Dreams, this year’s teen designers will be tasked to choose a surrealist artist and use that artist’s palate and creative focus to design an original garment out of recycled materials. Each designer will conceptualize the artist’s point of view as it relates to a specific environmental issue. Then, participants will incorporate all of their findings into original wearable art, made from recycled and repurposed materials including metallic mesh, newspaper, cardboard, egg cartons, canvas, remnant fabric, bottle caps, recycled plastics and splatter paint.
The high-energy event will feature music; hors d'oeuvres by Whole Foods Market Davie and Pembroke Pines; a recycled jewelry-making station by Levinson Jewelers, the official jewelry sponsor for Young At Art Museum; nail art by Kaizen Beauty Academy; “up-cycled” décor by IKEA Sunrise and couture clothing designed using recycled materials showcased by teen models during a supercharged New York-style runway show.
AM Radio 790 The Ticket’s Joy Taylor, sports cohost of The Ticket Morning Show, will be the emcee for the evening.
Designers for Surrealism Restyled! include girls from Young At Art Museum's American Express Teen Leadership Program and the PACE Center for Girls, which provides girls and young women with an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy. PACE has been a partner with Young At Art for several initiatives including the Teen Recycled Fashion Show and the self-esteem building program, Girls ‘N Power.
Teen models for Surrealism Restyled! will have their hair, nails and make-up styled by Kaizen Beauty Academy before they take to the runway to dazzle a panel of judges whose difficult task it will be to determine first, second and third place awards.
