On April 6th, the catwalk goes green!
The Cedar Rapids/Linn County Solid Waste Agency, in association with Goodwill of the
Heartland, presents the 5th Annual Recycle In Style Fashion Show. All of the models will be showcasing materials that came from Goodwill stores and Goodwill Industrial Contracts Division - all resourced into something wearable.
Local artist Sonya Darrow will showcase LADYFITS, alongside garments from Goodwill and local designers. Each designer will bring a different storyline to thrifting by educating the audience on ways to view a material as sustainable fashion. The featured clothing requires no additional consumption of resources and promotes the use of recycled textiles to create new designs.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, April 6th, with the show beginning at 7:00 p.m.
The event is free and will be held at Goodwill of the Heartland’s Cedar Rapids Center, 1441 Blairs Ferry Road NE, Cedar Rapids.
ATTENDEES MUST RSVP at our website: www.recycleinstyle.org<http://www.recycleinstyle.org>. Those who RSVP will be registered for door prizes and enjoy free refreshments.
