For the third year in a row, Asheville Community Theatre will hold their annual event Costume Drama: A Fashion Show, Asheville’s most unique fashion show. Local designers compete for cash prizes in this Project Runway-esque show, and proceeds from tickets benefit the theatre. Costume Drama: A Fashion Show will be held Monday, July 7 at 7:30 pm on the Mainstage of Asheville Community Theatre. Tickets are $20.00 and are available over the phone, online, or in person at the Asheville Community Theatre Box Office at 35 East Walnut St. in downtown Asheville.
Costume Drama: A Fashion Show is an incredibly popular event that has sold out every year. Local designers choose a themed category and create wearable art using paper, elements of nature, or upcycled/recycled items – or can create a garment that will go through a transformation while on the runway. Audience members vote on category winners by ballot and on the Best in Show design by donating to ACT – one dollar equals one vote.
“I look forward to this event every year,” said Susan Harper, Managing Director at Asheville Community Theatre. “The creative talent in this community is absolutely jaw-dropping. We simply cannot believe our eyes at the innovative and incredible garments that come down the runway.”
Costume Drama: A Cocktail Show is directed by Sara Fields.
Pre-show cocktails will be served at the cash bar beginning at 6:30 pm. A new signature cocktail, “The Seamripper,” will be offered in addition to wine, beer and champagne.
