Fashion Forward Past Events

Fashion Forward 2022 – Reuse. Reimagine. Refashion

The theme for the 2021-2022 is Reuse Reimagine Refashion: Creating Fashion Sustainability.

We had 373 students from 7 schools participating in Round 1. The Designer students sewed a pencil pouch project, and the Couture students created an up-cycle garment to determine who were going to advance to Round 2 of Fashion Forward. 46 finalists have advanced to Round 2.  The project will culminate in a Fashion Soiree on April 30th, 2022 where the students will showcase their exciting original designs to the community. ♻️
This year’s event has been scaled back from a large scale runway show to a more student-centered soirée. Due to this change in format and spacing limitations, this event will be limited to students and their families.
On behalf of the Junior League of Las Vegas, teachers, and students we would like to thank our sponsors Goodwill, The Cosmopolitan Hotel, Allegiant Airlines, and the Las Vegas Fashion Council for supporting Fashion Forward and look forward to seeing you on the runway!


Fashion Forward 2019 – Legendary Leading Ladies

Join the Junior League of Las Vegas at our 10th Anniversary Edition of Fashion Forward! Fashion Forward is a unique design challenge for Clark County high school students, patterned after the popular TV show, Project Runway. Fashion Forward aims to enhance the education of local design and fashion students and gives aspiring designers the opportunity to showcase their designs in a public setting, the Brooklyn Bowl!

This year, the JLLV Fashion Forward Committee, along with Star Costume and Theatrical SupplyThe Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, & Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, is thrilled to present “Legendary Leading Ladies of Stage & Film!” More than 300 students from 12 high schools began the competition last fall. Now only 68 remain, following a challenging elimination round that tasked the young designers with creating a muslin hoodie or button-down shirt to showcase their skills. Our students were given Legendary Leading Ladies as inspiration for their designs and have been working diligently all semester to make their one-of-a-kind garments come to life with fabric generously donated by Star Costume and Theatrical Supply!


Fashion Forward 2018

Last year, our event was themed Lights, Camera, Fashion! Our students were given iconic films and musicals as inspiration for their designs and worked diligently all semester to make their one of a kind garments come to life with fabric generously donated by Star Costume and Theatrical Supply. See some of the incredible student pieces below.
