Magpies & Peacocks presented the culmination of their innovative new design competition – "Catwalks & Classrooms", Twenty Five students were selected across the greater Houston area high school and college fashion courses and candidates from both categories got the chance to present their creatively upcycled looks at this stellar Showcase Event.
The winning students were announced during the evening and awarded prize packages that include scholarships, goods and services. Thanks to all who joined us at the JW Marriott Downtown Houston.
“ We are super excited about this year's 'Catwalks & Classrooms' student design showcase event at JW Marriott Houston Downton. I wanted Magpies & Peacocks to create a unique platform competition as an opportunity for our fashion design students – a kind of Project Runway meets Chopped concept – not only to challenge and showcase the local talent we have here in Houston, but to promote sustainable practices within the industry which is of course at the heart of our organization and our city as a whole.” ~Sarah-Jayne Smith, Founder of Magpies & Peacocks
