See Spectacular Uses of Waste Created to Support Education
Rubbish to Runway is a showcase of waste converted to wearable fashion to raise money for Long Way Home, an organization that demonstrates the practical repurposing of waste into self-sufficient schools and buildings.
Talented artists select materials that others discard and repurpose them into wildly creative garments that models rock on the runway.
The Rubbish to Runway funds have supported the construction of an educational campus in San Juan Comalapa, Guatemala. This year’s efforts will help sponsor the education of students at the Centro Educativo Tecnico Chixot, Long Way Home's flagship school located in Guatemala.
The 2018 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.
