Runway Repurposed combines the art of fashion design with the use of donated clothing and fabric from several local businesses. The popular event welcomes both beginner and advanced designers of any age to participate. The 2014 theme “Express Yourself” allows contestants to create any garment they wish to showcase on the runway. Finished garments will be judged based on several categories; prizes will be awarded and gift bags will be presented at the event.
Registration for the competition is Monday and Tuesday, January 6 and 7, from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Howell Opera House. At that time, contestants select the pieces of clothing they wish to use to create a new, original garment for the competition. Designer fee is $20 for adults and $10 for students; all details and guidelines will be given at registration.
Sponsorships and volunteer opportunities for the event on February 16 are available by contacting the Howell Opera House, 517.540.0065.
