This type of show is right up my alley, a vest made from a mop head, a top made from backpack straps and a dress made from a twister game and CDs.
This is a taste of the talent the Art Institute of Pittsburgh will bring on May 31 at the DoubleTree Hotel Downtown Pittsburgh to benefit the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh Veterans Build Program.
The 2nd Annual Hard Hats & High Heels Fashion Show will feature stunningly creative garments almost completely made from material found at Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore retail outlet in Edgewood Towne Centre.
Prior to the show, guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres, live music entertainment, and the chance to bid on over a dozen silent auction items, including Pittsburgh Opera Tickets, a Joy Ike House Concert, hotel stays, and several Salon and Beauty baskets.
The show itself will feature approximately 30 unique outfit designs, created by the Art Institute of Pittsburgh students. Each outfit will be judged by a panel of fashion experts from the Pittsburgh area.
In addition to models donning the creatively recycled outfits, Habitat partner families will also be modeling outfits from event sponsor Macy’s, directly from their Waterfront location.
An added bonus this year is the highly anticipated performance by the World-Renowned Abby Lee Dance Company, made famous by Lifetime’s television show “Dance Moms”.
