Event description form the ADCD website…
The Art Directors Club of Denver Paper Fashion Show is the largest paper fashion show in the nation with 50 teams that create runway designs almost entirely out of paper donated by xpedx. These fashions are showcased at our grand runway show and voted on by a panel of judges.
Nearly 1,000 people attend the event each year and partial proceeds benefit Downtown Aurora Visual Arts, which provides community-based arts education programs for at-risk youth ages 3 to 17. Kids participate in projects that help build self-esteem and increase connection to the community. The Art Directors Club of Denver has donated more than $31,500 to DAVA since the ADCD Paper Fashion Show’s conception in 2004.
As part of the event planning board for the 2013 event, the RMCAD student team and I were tasked with the creation of all the visual show deliverables for the ADCD Paper Fashion Show.
This included: programs, a step-and-repeat, banners, lanyards, a slide show, posters and much more. All of this was flushed out with consistency in the event theme of the little red dress.
The red dress represented the handcrafted elements of the event where each participant creates amazing dresses using only paper materials.
