Local designers are being sought for the 10th annual Runway Repurposed fashion show.

Runway Repurposed combines the art of fashion design with the use of recycled clothing and materials. Residents of all ages with a talent for fashion design are encouraged to take used clothing items and turn them into new designs, which are then displayed and sold at the fashion show and silent auction.

Designers are encouraged to register online early to reserve a spot. Those who don’t register online can do so in person at the clothing and fabric selection set for Saturday, January 13th and Monday, January 15th at Oak Pointe Country Club. That’s when contestants will select pieces of clothing they wish to use to create a new, original garment for the competition, which will be held on Sunday, February 25th at Oak Pointe. There are six competition categories this year.

Further details are available through the link.

Runway Repurposed is hosted by Grassroots Arts Initiative, a non-profit corporation dedicated to supporting the arts and artists of all mediums. Proceeds will provide scholarships for students in a variety of art disciplines and a portion of the proceeds from the event will support the Livingston Arts Council/Howell Opera House. (JM)
