Project Cuffway is a concept which combines two of Jill Donovan's two favorite things: fashion and packaging. The challenge was issued to Rustic Cuff fans: design fashions constructed completely out of Rustic Cuff packaging (boxes, bags, tissue paper, etc.). There are unique categories consisting of everything from creatively stitched active and swimwear to intricately designed evening and wedding gowns to visually stunning costumes. The event, now in its 3rdyear, is an amazing success story. The Rustic Cuff community, along with the generous support of some amazing sponsors, has raised over $330,000 for The National Pancreas Foundation. Project Cuffway has quickly become the foundation’s largest single supporter.
On April 7th, 2017, at the Cox Business Center in Tulsa, Project Cuffway celebrated its 2nd annual event with 1,000 attendees. From over 1100 entries, ninety-two contestants were selected to walk the runway to display their unique designs that were judged by an accomplished panel of judges. Grand Prize Winners were awarded of over $45,000 in prizes
This year’s event will be held on April 13th, 2018, in the Grand Ballroom at the Cox Business Center. Other event highlights include a silent auction, cuff pull, sponsor cocktail hour and wrap party.
