We hope you will join us in supporting the 4th Annual Iconcept Junior runway event at Art Center Sarasota on Sunday, September 22, 2019 at 12 noon. This is an opportunity for you or your business to get in front of hundreds of young families as well as thousands of residents through our promotion of the event. Show the community that you support our youth in developing their creativity- a skill that will last them a lifetime in whatever career path they take.

Iconcept jr. originated in 2016 as a special event to showcase young and talented artist/designers. This is a fundraising event to benefit Art Center Sarasota’s youth program.

Four years ago we launched a specialty workshop, Fashion Bootcamp, offered during the school year and through the summer. Basic skills in sewing are taught with expert instructors who work with the students to bring their concepts to fruition. Fashion Bootcamp is filled quickly with each offering, confirming to us that it is a highly sought after outlet for creativity offered nowhere else in our area.

For the event, young designers create works of wearable art, both fashion and fantasy. The challenge is not to design with fabric, but to be innovative and use repurposed or recycled items. The designers use their creative thinking and problem-solving skills to accomplish their desired “look”. Most of the designers model their outfits for the runway show, which develops self-confidence by presenting themselves and the work they are proud of to the public.
