Project Frumway

You guys know that I am all about modest fashions, and explaining that frum does not have to mean frumpy.

NCSY is having a great competition called Project Frumway. This is their blurb about this fantastic opportunity:

NCSY’s Project Frumway is a unique charitable fashion show and fashion design competition intended for women of all ages. The program is created and run by both yeshiva and public high school girls and promotes positive body image, fashionable modesty, self-confidence, and self-esteem. This program allows women to learn about the importance of tzniut, while creating a fun and glamorous atmosphere in which to learn about it. This community-wide event also invites high school girls to compete in a fashion design challenge in which they put their design skills to the test to create the most fashionable, tzanua outfit. The winner’s design is created by a Jewish clothing designer in the New York area and is featured on the Project Frumway catwalk. The program and challenge show women of all ages that they can dress with Torah values in modern times, without having to compromise either one.

I love that they are all about promoting positive body image, fashionable modesty and self esteem – these are so important, especially to young women in this day and age where thin is supposedly in.

If you know someone who would be interested have them check out NCSY’s Project Frumway Page that has all the details of how to enter on it.

I am thinking of entering myself…. But drawing and designing is not my strong point. Well, we already know what colour my outfit would be….

Good Luck to all – I hope to be there at the fashion show!!

  1. Frum and positive body image:

    Are they planning to have women of all ages, as well as all shapes, on the frum way?
    If not, how to they expect to be promoting body image?
    What about sports and athletics? Secular girls so inclined can compete, excel publicly, even receive money and scholarships for these activities.
    But once entering high school, bais yaacov girls rarely are involved in athletic pursuits, let alone as a event that would draw a fraction of the attention this running down the runway does.
    Athletic activity is one of the BEST ways to boost positive body image- taking joy in what your glorious body can DO; instead of how a bunch of yentas perceive it.
    When frum girls exercise its generally about the latter, not the former.

  2. A contestant can decide to either walk them selves in their design down the runway, or dress a model.
