Alyson Brown, a Rubbish to Runway designer and Lexington, MA drama teacher, organized the third annual Rubbish to Runway, Lexington. Unique to this show is the school setting, a middle-school. Fashions were completed by twenty five middle school students using their own rubbish—broken umbrellas, paint chips, soda bottles and plastic bags—all for the good of the children of Comalapa.
