Tickets are $25, or $10 with a valid student ID. All of the funds raised will benefit Child & Family Tennessee’s Runaway Shelter. A cash bar will be available throughout the event.
Project Runaway, a fashion show to benefit at-risk youth, will begin at 7 p.m. at the Foundry, with local designers presenting their thrift store recreations. Prior to designing their recreations, each of the designers participated in a preliminary shopping trip to choose two clothing items from an area KARM Thrift Store. Then, they were asked to deconstruct the clothing items and recreate them into a fashionable outfit to present on the runway.
The second part of the show will consist of local boutiques presenting their newest collections on the runway. These items will be available for purchase from the boutiques’ booths that will be set up throughout the Foundry. Event goers will also be treated to a performance by GUY MARSHALL and free hors d’oeuvres.
Additional partners for the event include Children’s Hospital and the University of Tennessee’s sororities.
