Mondo Guerra Hosts "Good Exchange for Change Fashion Show and Clothing Swap" Feb 7

Kick off Fashion Week by joining Project Runway All-Star winner and Denver fashion designer Mondo Guerra and three other Project Runway contestants for Goodwill’s third annual Good Exchange for Change Fashion Show & Clothing Swap. 

This evening of fashion and fundraising will be held from 5:30p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Exdo Event Center in Denver. 

 Guests who purchase VIP tickets will enjoy a pre-event meet and greet session with Mondo and Project Runway contestants Fallene Wells, Peach Carr and Michael Costello--plus they’ll be seated front row for the fashion show. The runway show will feature original designs using repurposed Goodwill clothing by students from Goodwill’s youth programs. 

Mondo, who got his start as a designer by repurposing items from Goodwill, will judge the student fashion show along with the three other Project Runway stars. The runway finale will feature up-cycled designs by up-and-coming designers debuting their new lines. 

 "I love being a part of the annual Goodwill Good Exchange for Change and Fashion Show,” said Project Runway All-Star winner Mondo Guerra. “It showcases the talent of these incredible young designers while supporting Goodwill's important work in our community." 

 While the fashion show is taking place, a giant clothing swap will be set-up in a separate space with the items that guests brought to swap with other event attendees. Once the fashion show wraps up, guests will be invited into the swap area-- and if they brought ten items to the event, they are welcome to take ten new items.
