Project Runway Kids 2019
Project Runway Kids - 2019 - The Next Generation - The Greatest Showman will be held on Sunday, May 19th from 5-10pm Skyline At Waterplace, 1 Finance Way in Providence.
Tina Melo, along with her young fashion designers will present their latest collections in celebration of their 5th Anniversary, once again being sponsored by Skyline At Waterplace.
Tina Melo, a Rhode Island School of Design alumnus, former European fashion designer & fashion analyst with Ralph Lauren, Victoria Secret, Converse & more, says she is on a mission. She's brought young talent together, as young as 5 years old thru teens, “to make their dreams & visions come alive”. Her efforts support “ceasing today's 21st century strongest nightmare: Child Sex Trafficking!”
The Melo Project Runway For Youth is a local non-profit 501(c)(3). It's Melo's passion brought to fruition, not only to provide safe mentoring to children, but classroom-like studies where design & pattern making is fostered while implementing math skills, comprehension skills and fully inclusive students have confidently grown & flourished on every level.
This platform provided participants with a positive experience and exposure to pursue their dreams in fashion, singing, dancing, modeling, martial arts, and more.
Many have gone on to win titles & awards, pursuing higher education in the world of fashion. Alumni are also returning to join the new faces of talent, making this year their “most spectacular show yet, as we celebrate our 5th Anniversary at Tina Melo Project Runway - and her Greatest Show On Earth”. This year will include something special with new pieces and performances by local artists & music to join the celebration of fun, hard work, growth & excellence!
