Waves of fun at the 9th Annual Fishin' For Fashion Show

Thu, 05/23/2024 - 11:15am

Saturday, June 15, 2024, hosted at the picturesque The Shipyard in Boothbay Harbor! This unique event sets sail into eco-conscious fashion, spotlighting the transformation of discarded marine materials into breathtaking designs. 

Designers are already working on this year's bespoke pieces! You’re invited to witness the magic of sustainable fashion as fishing netting turns into delicate lace, sailcloth becomes stunning dresses, fishing lures to shimmering jewelry, nautical charts morph into stylish shoes, and life jackets find new life as chic totes.  Local boutiques and shops get in on the fun and bring their season's best to showcase as well. Come see who will be strutting down the Lobster Trap Runway this year!
