Dress For Success Lexington is challenging local fashion designers to recycle unwearable clothes into runway-ready couture.

It's part of their Recycle The Runway fundraiser taking place Thursday, October 17th from 11:30 am to 1 pm at The Grand Reserve on Manchester Street in Lexington.

Money raised from the fashion show and luncheon will benefit Dress For Success and their mission to provide professional attire, support, and career development opportunities to disadvantaged women.

Local designers taking on the challenge to make thrown away rags look like a million bucks include Joanna Haberman, Maurico Crane of Maui Crane Designs, Alisha Martin of the Bad Button Bespoke, Lauren May, Samantha Jean Moore of Samara Sana, Rebecca Rauh and Amanda Wallace.

A panel of celebrity judges will decide whose collection "up-cycles" the recycled clothes the best.

This will be the first fundraiser for Lexington's Dress For Success chapter, which opened earlier this year.
