Goodwill Fashion Show
Work the Runway 2021: Goodwill associates modeled at the inaugural Work the Runway fashion show in 2021 to showcase affordable, sustainable fashion finds at Goodwill and how their lives have been transformed through Goodwill's mission.
Goodwill Industries of Central Oklahoma (Goodwill) is hosting its second annual “Work the Runway” fundraising fashion show from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, August 19, at the Oklahoma History Center. This year's proceeds will support the Goodwill Career Pathways Institute (GCPI) scholarship program providing free job training to youth, Veterans and those re-entering the workforce after imprisonment.
Work the Runway will be a unique experience for guests to celebrate sustainable fashion and support job training for Oklahomans in need,” Goodwill CEO Jim Priest said.
The entire event provides a close view of what we do here at Goodwill which is helping people overcome challenges to employment.”
The theme this year is “Through the Decades.” While any attire is welcomed, guests are encouraged to participate in the theme by wearing clothing inspired by 50s-2000s fashion. Goodwill associates and local social media influencers will come together to showcase and model various styles found at Goodwill stores.
The interactive fashion show will feature music from DJ Carte Blanche. The Good Threads Boutique will come back this year with high-end vintage items from Goodwill stores for guests to shop. Guests can also reminisce and show off their outfits in a “glamour shot” photo booth.
Throughout the event, guests will hear how Goodwill has helped transform the lives of our associate models while enjoying fashion, food, music and networking,” Priest continued.
