Thirty-six members from Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Bradford, Sullivan, Tioga and Wyoming counties were judged with their garments in appearance, fit, design, and fashion and construction techniques. In addition, participants attended workshops on modeling, Dress for Success, and making scissors pouches.
The day concluded with a fashion show and awards presentation. Lindsey Bartell was the winner in the Junior Wearable Year 2 Division.
Parola and Mazur also represented Lackawanna County at the state fashion revue at Penn State University July 24, competing against 4-Hers from across the state for the top-12 places.
