Rubbish to Runway Re-Fashion Show

Rubbish to Runway Re-Fashion Show

The Rubbish to Runway @ Veasey Memorial Park Re-Fashion Show, will take place over two nights, June 21st and June 22nd, 2024.
This exciting annual event features garments, upcycled or made by local designers using materials that would otherwise be recycled or thrown away. This is an inclusive, body-positive event that also promotes re-use, resourcefulness and sustainable practices. We are proud that this is a Zero Waste event!

Our theme for this year is “Rewilding”. “The act of rewilding is the reconnection with the surrounding natural world and rethinking the current relationship with nature” (Isabelle Sain, Content @ Threading Change).

Rewilding applies to fashion as well and we know the importance of re-use by shopping for vintage and thrifted items coupled with understanding the negative impact of fast fashion.

To support this theme, we have invited local thrift shops to participate, including non-profits who work hard to help the community in many ways.

Veasey Memorial Park is a town park and an event venue, situated on 48 acres of conservation land. This property was developed by a prominent Groveland Mill owner, Arthur Veasey, in the early 1900s, as a summer retreat. For 28 years the town park and building have remained affordable for use and open to the public.

The proceeds raised from Rubbish to Runway 2024 will go towards creating sustainable and affordable studio space for local artists as well as programming and support for cultural events, public art, interpretive science projects, environmental stewardship events, and workshops.
