"Recycled Fashion Show & High Tea." Like a good
philanthropist, clean out your walk-in closets and drop off your
best used clothes at Spoke the Hub Re:Creation Center (748 Union
St. between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Park Slope) before March
22, where the Hub’s "in house fashion composters" will
assemble your cast-offs into this year’s must-haves.
The "new" outfits will be sent down an improvised catwalk,
at Spoke the Hub, on March 30 at 3 pm, where guests are invited
to enjoy tea and pastries during the fashion show. Among the
"super" models will be High School for Leadership and
Public Service teacher Tracy Kornrich (pictured).
The post-show shopping frenzy begins at 4 pm. Admission, which
includes high tea, is $15. For reservations or to donate clothing
or modeling services, call (718) 857-5158. Reservations are recommended.
