Local vintage fashion purveyors Olives and Wax and My_Athens co-present a sustainable “re-fashion” show featuring 26 local designers. Supplied with a bag of used clothing from Olives and Wax, the competing designers had three weeks to dye, sew and alter the fabric into one unique ensemble. A judging panel of three local fashion experts, Shawna Lea Maranville of Community, Serra Branyon of Indie South Fair and Alexander Torrey of Umano Clothing, will select a winning look based on creativity, resourcefulness and the overall success of the outfit. The event also premiers My_Athens’ 2016 photo gallery, and a dance party will follow the show.
