Ever wondered what Project Runway would look like in Kansas City? Now’s your chance — minus Tim Gunn’s rounds to ask that designers “make it work.” The catwalk competition Restyle Runway asked Kansas City-area designers to create recycled fashions using clothes from Goodwill Industries, all in the name of being green. The show benefits Friends of JCDS, a local charity supporting people with developmental disabilities. Besides working for a good cause, designers have the added incentive of aiming for a $1,000 prize for first place. Head to the Overland Park Sheraton Hotel (6100 College Boulevard) at 6 p.m. for the show. Call 913-826-2670 for tickets, which cost $75 apiece and include drinks and appetizers. See friendsofjcds.com for more information.
