You may wear the outfit yourself or have someone model it for you at the garb runway. All are invited to participate. The theme of Princess Power is not limited to Seamstresses only. If you are a Tailor and have been inspired by a historical or fiction Princess show us what the male version of your vision is. Be prepared to explain your inspiration and various elements of your outfit. Outfits can be sewn by teams or individuals before the event and presented on site for the runway. Bonus points if it is taken from fiction but infused with historical correctness. Sponsored by St. Anne’s Guild of Clothiers, by request of Her Highness Signy and permission of Her Majesty Adelhait.
