Thrift Looks

There’s a reason that this whole “boyfriend jeans” trend has legs: Someone else’s clothes are always more appealing than your own. The organizers of the Restyle Runway Fashion Show have a cure for stagnant closets. They’re challenging area fashion-design students to create four to six outfits using donated clothing from Goodwill Industries’ stores. Models will rock the creations down a runway at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art (4420 Warwick, 816-753-5784) while attendees sip cocktails, munch appetizers and paw through eco-friendly goody bags. The show starts at 6 p.m., and the $75 ticket price benefits the Johnson County Developmental Supports, a Kansas nonprofit that helps Johnson County residents with developmental disabilities. Call 913-826-2670 for more information and tickets.
