Goodwill to host fashion show & clothing swap featuring Mondo from Project Runway | Arts & Culture
In fashion, one day you’re in, the next day you’re out. Celebrity designer Mondo Guerra of Project Runway fame is definitely in these days. On February 10, Mondo will join Goodwill Industries of Denver for an evening of fashion and fundraising at the Good Exchange Fashion Show & Swap, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at Infinity Park Events Center in Glendale. Guests will get a sneak peek at some of Denver’s up-and-coming young fashion designers during the evening’s fashion show, which will feature designs by students from Goodwill’s youth programs in local high schools. Mondo, who got his start shopping in Denver-area thrift stores, will also create an original design using repurposed Goodwill clothing to be auctioned off during the evening’s festivities.
“Goodwill is thrilled to partner with Mondo for this exciting event,” says Goodwill Industries of Denver spokesperson Jeni Anderson. “Having the support of a designer of Mondo’s caliber is incredibly exciting for everyone here at Goodwill, and the fact that he grew up here in Denver makes it all the more meaningful. We are so grateful he has thrown his support behind Goodwill’s mission of creating a strong, sustainable community.”
