MARC FASHION COMMITTEE:
The MARC Fashion Committee is pleased to announce that we will be piloting a third judging category at the National Meet in Dearborn in August. This category will be a blended category in that the ensemble may incorporate both original and reproduction items for its completion. The criteria for the blended category are as follows:
1. An original major garment must meet the criteria for an original major garment – authentic to the 1928 to 1931 years in style and fabric.
2. A reproduction major garment must meet the criteria for a reproduction major garment – authentic to the 1928 to 1931 years in style and fabric.
3. Any of the other four categories may be either original or reproduction or any combination of both.
4. Ensembles will be judged for the entire authentic appearance, just like a complete original or reproduction ensemble.
We encourage MARC members to consider entering this new category. And we look forward to seeing new faces and new ensembles in our fashion judging in August.
