Fashion Revue (April)
Website updated January 20th, 2022
Sonoma County 4-H Fashion Revue is a fun opportunity for Sonoma County 4-H members to show off the knowledge, skills and creativity they have used to create various clothing or textile related entries. The goals of 4-H Fashion Revue are to inspire an appreciation of clothing, textiles, consumer science, and personal development.
Evaluating for the Sonoma County 4-H Fashion Revue is based on the information in the State Fashion Revue's SFR Guide which includes scorecards and sample questions to ask participants. This guide is available at the State Field Day Volunteer website (under Fashion Revue). Evaluation of all categories includes: value vs. cost, versatility of entry, coordination, knowledge gained while creating entry, presentation, overall look, fit, cleanliness, complexity of skills used compared to sewing experience, and more! During evaluation, each participant is given 30-60 seconds to talk about their entry and then the evaluators ask questions about the entry.
Members may enter multiple County and State Categories at the Sonoma County Fashion Revue, but a member may only have one entry per category and an entry may not be entered in multiple categories. All garment and accessory entries are to be worn by member (not created and fitted for someone else). Outfits must meet the 4-H Dress Guidelines.
See the Category Entry Information Chart for a summary of what is required for each category.

If a County Winner is unable to enter State, then an alternate entry in the same category and age division will be invited to enter. When a member is County Winner for more than one State Category, the member must choose one category to enter at State and then an alternate entry of the other category will be invited to enter State.
You must turn in a complete entry form packet by the deadlines, including all data and pictures. The evaluators use this information!
