Over the weekend, I went to the Columbia Design League‘s annual green fashion show Runaway Runway. It is a design competition where all the clothes must be made out of recyclable items and trash. If you remember the last time I went to the event, I wasn’t impressed. This year was different. I went to Runaway Runway at the Township Auditorium because a friend of mine had entered the competition, and I wanted to support her.
Thanks to Runaway Runway 2011, my Friday night was full of recycled fashion, fun, and fuckery. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, let me inform you of Runaway Runway, see last year’s post, a green fashion show fundraiser held by the Columbia Design League. The Columbia Design League is a fantastic organization in Columbia that helps bring design and arts awareness to the local community. I plan on getting a membership, so I can attend more of their lectures in the future.
CHECK OUT THE NEW ITEMS IN THE FAT AND SKINNY SHOP! I’ve already sold FIVE items.
Friday night I went to the 701 Whaley building to see the Columbia Art Museum and the Columbia Design Leagues Runaway Runway show. There were a lot of cool clothes there. This year they had over 48 entries in the competition where designers had to make clothes out of recycled goods. I loved the Lady Gaga inspired dress made out of Monster energy drink cans and electrical cords. They also had drag queen entertainment by Party Time Divas and Lady Chablis. If you read my tweets from that night, then you know I had a blast!
Sorry the picture is a little blurry, but I wore a denim jacket from Old Navy, a white tee I shredded, my ASOS maxi skirt, and my Jeffrey Campbell 99 wedges.
