New for REfashion Weekend 2022 - Make Fashion Circular (MFC) Celebrity Challenge!
Six local makers & designers are participating in Resource Depot’s first ever
MAKE FASHION CIRCULAR Celebrity Challenge.
It all started with a jacket – one of their choosing in size, material and style - secured from their own collection or from the donated items for our REfashion Weekend. Over the last few weeks, these jackets were transformed, using materials and fashion construction techniques, from their original state into
one-of-a-kind upcycled pieces.
And one of these jackets can be yours if you are the highest bidder!
Bidding opens on Thursday, February 24th at 5pm and closes Saturday, March 5 at 2pm.
Our talented and very generous designers will donate 100% of the proceeds to Resource Depot!
Also available are some wonderful items donated by The Gardens Mall from five of their eco-conscious stores:
Madewell, Tumi, Everything But Water, Aveda and Carmen Sol.
