Time: 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Local designers and artists will showcase upcycled and recycled fashions on the runway at ScrapsKC’s first fashion show.
The ReVision Fashion Show is a fundraiser for ScrapsKC, a non-profit organization that collects and sells used fabric, crafts, artist and school supplies to fund education and a volunteer project for the homeless. The event will be held from 5:30 – 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 12 at ScrapsKC, 3269 Roanoke Road, Kansas City, MO. Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for ages 17 and younger.
Twenty designers will feature their fashions and compete for awards in several categories. The evening includes creative activities, a treasure map adventure through the store, appetizers and beverages. Guests are invited to dress creatively in repurposed materials.
“A repurposed fashion show is a dynamic way to introduce the city to our mission to care for Kansas City’s environment through reuse and to showcase the creative talents of novice to professional designers in the metro,” said Brenda Mott, executive director at ScrapsKC.
Since 2016, ScrapsKC has diverted more than 100 tons of materials from the landfill and reclaimed and repurposed more than 15,000 pounds of used school supplies to donate to more than 350 teachers. Community and homeless volunteers have spent in excess of 1,500 hours to clean and prepare these supplies for thousands of children. Scouts and other volunteers have partnered with ScrapsKC to serve more than 2,200 breakfast meals on Saturday mornings to hundreds of homeless people in the community. The organization also provides refuge, food and necessities to homeless men and women in return for their help in maintaining the organization’s facilities.
