The Fashion Revue is an event that is part of Field Day for those enrolled in 4-H to highlight their efforts and to develop self-confidence and poise. Members have the opportunity to model the garments they have made or purchased and to present themselves at their best in personal grooming, posture, modeling, and accessorizing their garment. The day is one of learning, as well as competing. Instruction will be given, especially to the Beginners, on how to model. All entrants will receive written, constructive comments on their outfits. Members must be enrolled in the clothing or fashion revue projects. Garments must not have been shown in a previous Fashion Revue and must have been completed in this 4-H project year.
