Homegrown: A Collaborative Fashion Festival
A host of local arts visionaries will come together at the Dare County Head Start Center in Manteo at 6pm on Friday, June 11 for the inaugural collaborative fashion runway show and artisan market known as Homegrown.
Founded by Manteo native Treveon Govan, Homegrown is inspired by some of Dare County’s most unique creatives and bridges the gap between the genres of design, music, art, surf, skate, and fashion that embody the Outer Banks’ culture. The event is co-hosted by Dare County Arts Council and sponsored by Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.
The centerpiece of Homegrown will be a runway show, showcasing new fashion and designs from Mom’s Sweet Shop, Local As It Gets, KIIIND, Long Way Home, Ruckus, CCM Workshop, Wescott, Starr Boutique, Amiligoisili, and Made by Jinx.
The runway will transform into a stage with local musicians Zack Mexico, Holden McOwen and Tshombe Selby performing throughout the evening.
Admission to Homegrown is free and it is a family-friendly event that will also include live art, vendors and more!
Businesses interested in sponsoring Homegrown should contact Dare County Arts Council’s Executive Director Chris Sawin at DareArtsInfo@gmail.com.
This project is sponsored by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.
Homegrown will be following all federal and state guidelines regarding COVID-19 to keep everyone safe, while still providing a quality experience.
