Recycle The Runway — a “Project Runway” style fashion show which will be streamed virtually — is a must-see Quad Cities favorite, presented by Dress For Success. Before the designers are even chosen, volunteers fill giant bags full of random clothing, shoes, accessories, etc. and number them. Once the designers are selected, each one gets to come pick out a bag with no idea what is inside. The designers then have 6 weeks to craft a “runway-ready” outfit out of whatever they find in the bag!

Quad-Cities' Recycle The Runway To Help A Great Cause With Dress For Success!

Recycle the Runway 2021 will feature designs by Alexandra Chayer of The Shop Lema, Julia Page & Grace Olsen, Malina Lee of Odd Bettie’s, Becca Nicke & Red Perreze of Abernathy’s, and Kerry Lao & Kelly Lao.

Tickets start at $35, which includes access to the virtual event and an entry to our “Lexus for the Weekend” drawing!

And, you won’t want to miss the spectacular silent auction, which is live now!

100% of the night’s proceeds will go to providing free job-search assistance, group workshops, career coaching, and professional clothing for women in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois searching for employment, transitioning into a new industry, working to advance their careers, and interested in career and professional development resources.
