The Dalí’s Fashion Design Runway & Awards Show at Gibbs High School

  • This event has passed.

February 24 @ 6:00pm 8:00pm

The Dalí Museum invites you to witness the wild side of talented teen designers as they walk the runway in their own surreal fashion designs. Come to Gibbs High School to view their Dalí-inspired works of wearable art created in this year’s Fashion Design at The Dalí program.

This program invites Tampa Bay area high school students to learn the fundamentals of fashion design and runway presentation to create tangible connections between Dalí’s art and fashion. Using selected works from The Dalí Museum as their inspiration, students explore advanced sewing techniques and non-traditional material usage to bring their ideas from rendering to reality. This year’s theme, “Eleg-ants: Designs from Dalí’s Animal Kingdom,” challenges students to create concepts that draw from the many animals, insects and sea creatures in Dalí’s artwork.

Student designs will be showcased and judged at this final runway event at PCCA at Gibbs High School on February 24, 2024. Selected student designs will win prizes in ten categories and will be honored in a display at Florida CraftArt through March 17.
