As an extension of its mission to promote sustainable fashion, newly launched vintage vendor Olives & Wax is hosting a runway competition. Over two dozen contestants were given bags of recycled clothing and two weeks to transform the fabrics into at least one new wearable item. Their creations will be debuted before a panel of judges, including Sanni Baumgartner of Community and Alyssa DeHayes of Arrowhead Vintage. Nonperishable food items (or cash) can be traded for raffle tickets, offering a chance to win prizes from Adam’s Optics, Dynamite, Hi-Lo, The Pine and a handful of other locally owned businesses. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Athens Area Emergency Food Bank and Community Connection.
