Discarded to Divine started in 2005 when Sally Rosen with St. Vincent de Paul, invited designers to take discarded clothing and create wearable works of art and home decor and has now created a charitable event featuring collections of one-of-a-kind fashion creations benefiting the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s services to people battling poverty, homelessness and domestic violence.
The event takes place this Thursday, April 28 at The Hall at St. Mary’s Cathedral. I have been really wanting to get more involved in these types of events beyond just attending and contacted the volunteer coordinator to see how I could possibly help out at the event. And I’m excited to share that I will be a volunteer at the 2011 gala event helping with seating and the auction (and also able to enjoy the fashion show!) I’m extremely excited for an opportunity to help out such a great cause and meet more people involved.
Look for a post later this week as I share photos and a recap of the wonderful event.
RECYCLED FASHIONS. RENEWED LIVES.
