Stunning and Spectacular Uses of Waste for Education
Rubbish to Runway is a showcase of waste that has been converted to wearable fashion to raise money for Long Way Home, an organization that demonstrates the practical repurposing of waste materials into self-sufficient schools and buildings.
Our talented artists choose materials that others shun or discard. They convert them to astonishing, outlandish, and wildly creative garments that our models rock on the runway.
The funds for Long Way Home have already helped build seventeen school buildings on one educational campus in San Juan Comalapa, Guatemala. This year’s efforts will help fill the school’s library with learning and educational materials and supplies.
Join us this year as a spectator, a designer, a model, or a sponsor.
We—and the children of San Juan Comalapa—appreciate your support.
The 2017 shows will be in five different locations throughout North America. Each show will have a flavor unique to its community. Each one is driven by the composition and interests of its community but all have the common commitment to reuse and an appreciation of beauty and art.
