Fashion and style can be found at any price, anywhere, and in all different forms! But buying used or thrifted clothing contributes to a more sustainable planet, reducing waste in our landfills. Luckily, thrifting and secondhand fashion continues to be an integral part of street style! Still haven’t found your personal style? You may discover it among the racks of vintage, classic, or current items at Goodwill!
This year, we’re partnering with Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania to bring guests the Goodwill Fashion Challenge on April 22nd in Market Square from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
• Did you know that in 2015, Goodwill recycled over 25 million pounds of material?
• By donating and shopping at Goodwill, you are helping someone in our local community get a job!
• Don’t have time to visit a store? Checked out Goodwill’s online shopping site!
The Goodwill Fashion Challenge will allow Pittsburgh stylists and bloggers to use Goodwill items to create their favorite Street Style look using sustainable clothing and accessories. Goodwill curating experts will gather the most chic and funky finds throughout the Goodwill stores in the region to provide a closet full of options for the stylists to use!
Participating stylists include Wadria Taylor, founder of Pittsburgh Style Week, Alex Duffy of Duffy Dossier, Christen Malone of the Thrifty Yinzer and Dominique Seneca from the Andy Warhol Museum!
Stylists will have a limited amount of time to put together their best looks using the items provided. The stylists will showcase their personal style and creativity using only the recycle materials and clothing provided by Goodwill. DJ Nugget will be providing the tunes to get you movin’ and groovin’!
After the allotted time, stylists will showcase their outfits in Market Square in the Goodwill Closet, and then creations will be moved to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center for the Pittsburgh Earth Day Art + Artifact Market from 5:00 -9:00 PM, where attendees can vote on their favorite style. The look that receives the most votes will win a Fashion Prize pack filled with local, fashionable goodies!
So join us and Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania on Friday, April 22nd in Market Square for this stylish and eco-friendly fashion event!
