On April 30th, the catwalk goes green.

The Cedar Rapids/Linn County Solid Waste Agency, in association with Goodwill of the
Heartland, presents the 3rd Annual Recycle In Style Fashion Show. This yearʼs theme: Thrift
by Design. All of the models will be showcasing materials that came from a thrift store,
resourced into something wearable.

Local thrift artist Sonya Darrow will showcase LADYFITS, alongside garments from Goodwill
and local designers Ramona Muse, Carissa Starleaf and Brooke Dearborn. Each designer
will bring a different storyline to thrifting by educating the audience on ways to view a
material as sustainable fashion. The featured clothing requires no additional consumption of
resources and promotes the use of recycled textiles to create new designs.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, April 30th, with the show beginning at 7:00 p.m. The free
event will be held at Goodwill of the Heartlandʼs Cedar Rapids Center, 1441 Blairs Ferry
Road NE, Cedar Rapids.
Space is limited: RSVP through the Solid Waste Agency, or
