The City of Manassas is teaming up with the Martin K. Alloy Boys & Girls Club of Manassas, American Disposal Services and Savers® for the second year to offer a very special fashion show, which will be held at the Boys and Girls Club located at 9501 Dean Park Lane, Manassas, VA 20110 on Wednesday November 15, 2017 at 6 p.m., to celebrate America Recycles Day with a project that is catwalk ready and totally recycled!
Project Recycle Runway will provide Club members aged 9 – 13 with an interesting and innovative way to learn about textile reuse by engaging them in a meaningful recycling activity… a fashion show!
Club members will begin their fashion odyssey by learning about textile recycling and the how the use of old and modified clothing led to street fashion inspiring designers and changing the direction of style around the world.
A shopping tour at Savers® will provide the inspirations and materials for their own designs, which will be original adaptations of the clothing and accessories that they find. The hard work will begin when the budding designers and stylists take the next two sessions to develop their own designs for the runway.
Finally, all of the planning and hard work will come together with a fashion show at the Martin K. Alloy Boys & Girls Club in Manassas, on America Recycles Day. A panel of judges will choose a winning design along with awards for the runners up.
