Project Runway All-Star Mondo Guerra Judges Goodwill Fashion Show
On February 8, Project Runway All-Star and Denver fashion designer Mondo Guerra will join Goodwill Industries of Denver for an evening of fashion, food and fabulous finds at the second annual Good Exchange for Change Fashion Show & Clothing Swap. The event will be held from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at the Exdo Event Center in Denver.
Guests who purchase VIP tickets will enjoy a meet and greet session with Mondo before the event and special VIP seating for the fashion show. The fashion show will feature original designs using repurposed Goodwill clothing by students from Goodwill’s youth programs at Denver School of the Arts and CEC Middle College in Denver. Mondo will judge the fashion show along with fellow Colorado Project Runway alumni Fallene Wells and Julie Tierney.
In addition to judging the fashion show, Mondo will auction off an original outfit from his collection. Julie and Fallene will also auction off high-fashion looks repurposed from Goodwill clothing. Proceeds will go to benefit Goodwill’s youth services programs in 28 metro area and Northern Colorado high schools.
