EASTON, Pa. – Crayola is wrapping kids in colorful fashion - and just in time for fall!

Crayola Experience will host "Wrapped in Color!" a fashion show featuring designs by kids, for kids, on Thursday, September 17, from 6 p.m.-9 p.m.

The third annual event, presented by Dreyus Kids, a designer kids' clothing boutique in Easton, Pa., will feature dozens of "looks" imagined and crafted by a group of young designers between the ages of 5 and 17. Auditions are set for July 11 and July 18. Last year, the event was emceed by B104's Steph Wells, and celebrity judges included Miss Teen Pennsylvania USA 2014 Sydney Robertson and Carol Hannah (Project Runway, Season 10.)

This year is set to be bigger and better than ever. The show will benefit a local charity (TBD) and may help one very special designer in Crayola Stores nationwide.

"Crayola's mission is to raise creatively alive children, and this event is a beautiful example of just how strong that creative spark can be," Crayola Experience Marketing Manager Kristin Luise said. "The work these kids have done is nothing short of inspiring, and we can't wait to see what they have up their sleeve this year."
