INDFW Youth Designer Challenge

We have partnered with Goodwill Industries to host a challenge that features six (6) high school students who aspire to be a part of the fashion industry. The Twist? These students have little-to-no experience designing. During this two-day challenge, students will design looks made entirely from materials they pulled during a shopping spree at a local Goodwill store.
