Design For CTF

We are always looking for new designers to create unique entries for Compassion Through Fashion. No experience required – our designers come from all walks of life and are just as unique as the entries they create – local artists, creators, and the fashionably inclined; members of community groups, churches, and clubs; non-profit organizations, schools, businesses, and families.


Any individual who wishes to create a fun, inventive, original fashion ensemble using recyclable materials. Individuals may represent themselves, a local business, organization, or facility.
