Event description

Description

Hancock Park District is seeking local fashion designers and artists to create fashionable looks made from materials that would otherwise be headed to the landfill.

Recycled Runway, Posh Repurpose for Parks will be a fundraising fashion show for the Hancock Parks Foundation. The Hancock Parks Foundation was created in 1989 by community leaders who believed the park system, as an important public trust, should have financial help beyond tax levies approved by citizens of Hancock County.

Participants in the show are required to make wearable fashion pieces out of recycled materials (perfect for your portfolio) and will have a chance to win prizes--maybe even $500 for first place! The designer entry fee is required for each entry and includes admittance to the event for 1 designer and 1 model.

When: Friday, May 4, 2018 @ 7:00 p.m.
Where: Findlay, Ohio

The fun-filled evening will be emceed by WFIN’s Chris Oaks. Guests will enjoy drinks, hors d'oeuvres, music, raffles, and an exciting and unique fashion show!
