Each team will represent either the good or the bad personality traits of a specific zodiac sign. Your team’s garment should reflect the zodiac sign in general but should also focus on one or more of the traits. Please make sure you note the trait(s) you have selected on your sketch.
Make it work, and we'll see you on the runway!

Interpretation of Theme
Best of Show
Best Hair + Makeup
This year’s theme is Zodiac Signs. Each sign possesses a distinct set of personality traits that sets it apart from the rest. Are you an optimistic Sagittarius, a charming Libra, or a secretive Scorpio? All of the stars will align on April 26th for a good vs. evil showdown on the runway. What’s your sign?
Design Teams will participate in two events – the Kick Off Social and the CRE8 Fashion Show. Please review the Important Dates and check your work or class schedule before registering. Models may need to be available as early as noon on April 26th for hair + makeup and the rehearsal.
Each team will be randomly paired with their Garment Underwriters by the CRE8 Committee. Random pairings will be announced on the website and via email. It is up to the Design Teams and Garment Underwriters to meet and select their materials. Materials will be given to the Design Teams at the Kick Off Social, and at least 3 Design Team members must attend this event. Teams that are given their materials before the Kick Off Social will be disqualified.
At least 50% of your garment must be constructed of materials from your Garment Underwriters.
Additional materials must be provided by the Design Team and cannot exceed a budget of $150. This budget amount must cover, but is not limited to, accessories, shoes, and fasteners/closures.
Outside help (including alterations) is not allowed. Use of pre-made shells (such as an old dress) is allowed and encouraged as long as the Design Team incurs the expense. Any shell must be altered from its original appearance by either completely covering or reworking.
The Design Team and the garment are a representation of the design firm or school and the manufacturers associated with each design. Reference to violence, nudity of any kind, or garments that are distasteful or offensive will not be tolerated.
All rules and regulations are enforced at the discretion of the CRE8 Committee and IIDA DFW City Center Council, and they reserve the right to disqualify any Design Team.
If your Design Team can no longer participate, please notify the CRE8 Committee by February 28, 2013. If the Design Team withdraws after February 28th, there will be a cancellation fee of $350, and the tickets will be forfeited.
Design Teams and Garment Underwriters will be randomly paired by the CRE8 Committee and announced on the website and via email. It is up to the Design Teams and Garment Underwriters to meet and select their materials.
