A quick stroll through the Museum’s Education Gallery and main entrances leaves everyone saying: “Wow!” “Cool!” “A sixth grader made that?!” Our Birmingham Fashion Week: Rising Design Star Challenge exhibition is filled with impressive, inventive, and flat-out cool designs from students in grades 6 through 12 in our community. Each piece is made of everyday objects, many of which you’d never expect to see on a runway or in a museum. The details that make up each of the 31 designs range from quirky to personal, creating a unique work of art by the student.

Here, we have compiled 10 creative details that you have to see in-person to really appreciate. Make a trip to the Museum before April 13 to see the designs and vote on your favorite. The winning designer will win the People’s Choice Award and be featured on the runway at Birmingham Fashion Week! Your vote counts – come in today!
