ART: Ragfinery upcycle challenge: Transform an old wedding dress

Ragfinery’s second Upcycle Challenge will culminate in a red-carpet “show-off” at 7 p.m. Friday, May 1, at the shop, 1421 N. Forest St.

Individuals and teams who’ve taken on the challenge have changed old wedding dresses with creative accessories, clothing, or anything else they’ve dreamed up. Participants will share their creations at the event’s “show-off,” where they can wear it, roll it, or drag it down the red carpet. A panel of judges will determine the winners and the top three submissions will receive cash or gift prizes.

The event has four goals: Bring attention to reducing fibers in the waste stream, create awareness about repurposing items; bring people into Ragfinery to see what they do; and create community fun.
