Friday Night Fashion!

Streams September 10, 2021 * 7:30 pm

This Friday night, tune in from any location to watch Costume Drama: A Fashion Show! For 10 years, this show has been a spectacular design challenge, and this year is no different! Our categories this year were:
  • Garage Sale - Runway-worthy looks fashioned from anything that might be found in a garage or basement. 
  • Mix and Match Throwback - This category, created to honor Costume Drama’s 10th anniversary, required designers to pull inspiration from two of the four category materials used in the show’s inaugural production. These are: Paper, Feathers, Flowers, and Tape. 
  • Toy Box - Garments made from items one might find in a toy chest. 
Good news: you can watch this year's show from anywhere! Costume Drama has been pre-recorded and will be streamed on Friday, September 10. You’ll receive a unique link to join the broadcast when you purchase a $25 ticket! Proceeds benefit Asheville Community Theatre.
