Triad Goodwill seeks fashion designers and enthusiasts for October fashion showcase.
Greensboro, NC – By popular demand, Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina, Inc. (Triad Goodwill) will extend the designer deadline for this year’s Rock the Runway to Saturday, February 29 at 11:59 p.m.
“We’ve noticed a lot of designers were excited to get the word that Rock the Runway is coming back, but that they also needed more time to prepare their application materials and portfolio,” says Teresa Smith, Marketing Director for Triad Goodwill.
Titled Rock the Runway: Shock the Runway, this premier fashion event will debut on October 24.
Selected designers will be provided with gift cards to purchase clothing and other items from Triad Goodwill’s 24 retail stores in Alamance, Caswell, Guilford, Randolph and Rockingham Counties. Designers will reconstruct the garments to create runway-ready fashion inspired by the colors, motifs, style or themes of classic scary movies.
To be considered, potential designers must apply online and submit photos of four of their best designs and agree to meet all deadlines.
Proceeds from Rock the Runway: Shock the Runaway will benefit Triad Goodwill’s mission of improving lives and enriching communities through the power of work.
