Project Condom

Sponsored by Global Protection and ONE Condoms, Project Condom is a merge of art and fashion while promoting safer sex behaviors for college-aged students. Based on the TV show Project Runway, teams of students will have the opportunity to create and showcase garments made entirely of condoms!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a garment?

Teams typically use fabric, sewing materials, and glue to construct their garments. Old clothes (dresses, t-shirts, shorts, etc.) may act as the base for the garment. Teams may paint condoms as they see fit. As we only supply the condoms, additional materials needed to construct the garment will need to be purchased by the designers.

Who supplies the condoms?

Wellness & Prevention Services will provide unwrapped, non-lubricated, colored male/external condoms donated by ONE Condom Company.

Why do I need a theme?

The purpose of Project Condom is to raise awareness about safer sexual health behaviors and issues and to decrease the stigma associated in an innovative way. While we hope that this event is fun and intriguing, it is important that each garment embodies an educational message for the program attendees.

Can I design a garment with other people?

YES! We strongly encourage collaboration among students to create garments for the event. This year, each team will consist of people already living together (including the model) . This can be roommates, suitemates, or housemates. Garments should be sponsored by a club, organization, fraternity, sorority, center, or class.

Does the model have to be a woman?

NO! Anyone is welcome to model a garment.

How will designers be recognized?

You will be asked to submit photos of your costume on the model. Images will be posted on social media and on our website.

How will winners be recognized?

The public will vote on garments based on creativity, connection to the event theme, sexual health message, design, and stage presence. Winners will receive a prize pack from ONE Condom Company. In addition, we will have a public vote this year!
