The 2022 Threadfair Charity Fashion Show was held last Sunday morning at the south Austin venue, Lenoir. The outdoor and intimate space featured original fashions designed by AISD students.
The annual show provides a platform for not just the designers but also aspiring models, and makeup artists to collaborate on original collections expressing their individual aesthetics and passions.
The Austin ISD high school students also completed all aspects of the planning and staging of the event. Avery Edwards served as show director.
The students unveiled their collections and each designer received feedback from the panel of Austin judges with the top designer being awarded top honors.
The panel of judges included Austin fashion designer and retailer Csilla Somogyi from Csillawear, Sloan Lenz of This is Sloan and Caden Ziegler with Flavors Creative Group. Judge Csilla Somogyi mentioned the designs that were wearable, saleable, clever, and chic. These were the main elements to make the final decision for the show honors.
The panel of three judges selected designer Erin Earthman with her models Irena Li and Ruby Suelter. The two designs pieces added a hand embroidery waist accent.

Parisa Enayatpour – Most Cohesive and Use of Color

All of the proceeds from the fashion show ticket sales and silent auction were donated to Dress for Success.
