Future Fashion Folio
The Future Fashion Folio
is a popular two-part contest! For the first part, anyone can send in original fashion designs. These designs are juried and the best are put together into a booklet (the Folio) and sent to all designers and registered members of the convention. For the second part, registered attending members of the convention can choose any design from the Folio and make it to be displayed in a fashion show at the convention.
