This event offers 4-H members enrolled in the clothing and textiles or fashion revue projects the opportunity to be judged on and to model the work they have done.

Fashion review participants compete in five categories. They are: purchased, traditional, recycled, super structure and modeling.

The purchased category allows members to buy a complete outfit, including jewelry, hat, shoes and other accessories, for a maximum price of $150. The members are then judged on how well their outfits are accessorized and if they stayed within the spending guidelines.

The participants in the primary purchasing section were Samantha Holiman and Arianna Hernandez, both of Star Route 4-H. The novice purchased outfit participant was Rosalia Romero, Saint Mary's 4-H, county winner. The junior purchased outfit participant was Jeanine Smith, Star Route 4-H, county winner. The intermediate purchased outfit participants were Tobi Spencer, Family 4-H, county winner, Allison Wray, Verde 4-H, first medalist, and Maria Gonzales, Saint Mary's 4-H, second medalist. The senior purchased outfit participants were Elainea Spivey, Family 4-H, county winner, and Jonathan Pendly, El Centro 4-H, honorable mention.
