What is Construction Couture?

VBA presents our 5th Annual Construction Couture on March 24th at AAAA Theatre Downtown Alexandria. It's the event of the year!

The show introduces building & raw materials to fashion design. It has lots of imagination, creativity, fun. glamour and energy to make it a show that you will want to come back & see year after year. The evening will include a social hour and silent auction along with an extraordinary appetizer bar and cocktails prior to the event, for socializing and networking.

Outreach Food Shelf will be hosting the silent auction fundraiser this year. 100% of the silent auction proceeds will go to Outreach Food Shelf.

Models are students from Alexandria Technical and Community College, Alumni and Community Members who create a vision, see that vision through and show off their vision at this great event! Costumes will be judged on Most Wearable, The Raw Factor (best use of building/raw materials) and The Show Stopper (most innovative/creative) along with People's Choice, where the audience picks who was their favorite. The winner for the People's Choice will be announced the next day on KXRA.

The costumes are constructed using creative ideas and resources outside of the norm. They are embellished with materials such as house wrap, wallpaper, duct tape, laminate, carpet, electrical wire, nails and screws, concrete, home essentials, flashing, sheathing, plants, tile, and the list goes on and on. Some materials are donated by our members and other local businesses. Models are encouraged to think outside the box!
