STAB's Dec. 2 Wearable Art Runway Show To Celebrate The Beatles

Charlottesville, Va., Nov. 9 – For the eleventh year St. Anne's-Belfield School visual arts students will walk the runway wearing garments they created out of anything but traditional fabrics. This year the theme of the show, taking place Dec. 2 with an encore event on Dec. 3, will be The Beatles, allowing the music of the show to inspire the budding fashion designers in their choices.


"This year our designers are using Capri Sun pouches, tea wrappers, plastic bottles, straws, sunflower seeds, and of course records to create forty-five garments," said visual arts instructor Alexis Parker.


A total of 48 students will be involved in the runway show, with even more involved in the Dec. 2 evening event as members of the TrebleMakers and Elements of Sound a cappella groups and the Philharmonic and Counterpoints string ensembles.


Garments will complemented by a variety of accessories made by younger students from the School's Kindergarten through eighth grade Learning Village.


Tickets to the Dec. 2 show include dinner, with a special menu available for children aged eleven years and younger. An encore of the show will take place on Dec. 3.


Doors of the Student Activity Center (2132 Ivy Road) open at 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 2, and 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 3. Ticket prices vary, and will be on sale through Nov. 30. More information is available at
