Utilizing materials salvaged from greasy garage benches, refuse bins and grandma's closet, designers at the fifth annual Reconstruct benefit fashion show are vamping up their duds for a new theme: The Illusionist.
These reused, recycled and reconstructed masterpieces will storm the Flying M Coffeegarage catwalk on Saturday, June 18, beginning at 7 p.m. A silent auction featuring donations from The Record Exchange, Simple Sushi, Cameo Salon and wines from Bueno Cheapo Vino will be open for the entire week preceding the show.
The fashion show and silent auction both raise funds for the local chapter of Dress for Success, a nonprofit organization that provides women with the resources to help them return to, or enter, the workforce. Last year's show, Masquerade Ball, raised more than $2,000, and organizers are looking to do even better this time around.
Tickets are $10 in advance at either Flying M location or $15 at the door. This event has sold out in the past, so get your tickets early.
