2019 NCA Conference - Creative Style Show

Posted: December 5, 2018

The NCA Board of Directors is proud to announce the return of THE CREATIVE STYLE SHOW next July at the Conference in Kansas City. We're now taking reservations to participate in this most popular event! Here's how it works: Each volunteer shop receives the same mystery box in late February/early March and they use the entire contents to create a costume for the Runway Show at the Conference. Sometimes the box is funny – sometimes not! That's the challenge! You can also add $15 of your own for thread, zippers or special trims! There are limited spots available for this event “All Jazzed Up!”. The theme can be interpreted any way you like. Take time to join the others already committed and call (402) 556-1400 or email [email protected] and we'll make sure you're a part of this NCA Costume Tradition. (And the costume is yours to keep!)
