'Bloom where you're planted'
The fifth annual Recycle, Repurpose, Refashion Show was again a complete sellout. The brunch and fashion show was held at Casa Del Sol on Saturday, with special speeches and entertainment from the International students who have been helping out at CrossRoads MarketPlace. The students from Pakistan are Sabira Batool, Neetesh Kumar and Asghar Saeedi. Saeedi also danced and modeled traditional Pakistani formal wear. Batool modeled in the fashion show. Also appearing in the fashion show were Aizhamal Sydykova from Kyrgyzstan and Tapiwa Magate from Zimbabwe. Sydykova suggests if you like lovely mountain terrain and alpine sports and can't afford Switzerland, try Kyrgyzstan.
Well-known local women and girls modeled apparel from the thrift store and jewelry and accent items from the Fair Trade store. Only Saeedi and Mayor Lynn Horner modeled men's clothing this year, but both were enthusiastic.
The theme for this year's show was "Bloom where you're planted." Fairy gardens decorated the tables and a small bottle of seeds was the favor. The menu was Quiche Lorraine, fruited spinach salad, dinner roll and cream puffs in a pan. Items were available for sale and at auction. The items sold, the dinner and the venue were donated, so that all the money raised by the affair will go to the women of Guatemala to help them with creating small gardens to be used to feed their families and trade or sell for other necessities.Read more here:orange formal dresses
