It was another amazing evening with Goodwill Industries of Denver, as they put on the second annual “Good Exchange for Change” Clothing Swap and Fashion Show, this time at the EXDO Event Center in Denver. Mondo Guerra, Denver’s own Project Runway star from season eight, was joined by fellow Colorado Project Runway designers from season nine, Fallene Wells and Julie Tierney, to host a very special kind of show and offer their support for the wonderful work of Goodwill. Denver TV and radio personalities Lisa Hidalgo and Denise Plante were terrific co-emcees. Nearly all the models in this blog post were students from Goodwill’s youth programs at Denver School of the Arts and CEC Middle College that had purchased and “repurposed” clothing from local Goodwill stores. There were professional models too, from Wilhelmina Denver, but all clothed in fashions purchased at area Goodwill stores. In addition to a fabulous evening of entertainment and the awarding of the top prize to winning student Uriel Moreno, three gorgeous outfits were auctioned off, personal creations of Mondo, Julie and Fallene. Finally, each of the 800 people who attended the event, and who each brought 10 items of clothing to donate to Goodwill, were set loose among the donations to select 10 new items to take home! Proceeds from the event went to benefit Goodwill’s community programs, which help tens of thousands in our community every year. What a night! And what a way to showcase the important work that Goodwill Denver does!
