Teens will strut their stuff at New Hanover County Public Library's Third Annual Fashion Design Contest, "Fiction to Fashion". The public is invited to this free event! Teens were challenged to register in January and design outfits from recycled books, cassette tapes, and CDs. Local fashion authorities are mentoring on artistic vision and presentation as the contestants prepare for the February 23 Runway Show. The venue for the "Fiction to Fashion" Runway Show is Expo 216, a non-profit specialty museum at 216 North Front Street. Contestants will model their designs for a live audience, and the fashion authorities will award special prizes to be announced at the event. Information about "Fiction to Fashion" and video from the 2015 Runway Show is on the Library's website at http://libguides.nhclibrary.org/newse/f2f.
