Discard Avant Garb 10th Anniversary
UPDATE: Nippertown says: "OK, we freely admit that we don’t know much about fashion, but we sure do love Discard Avant Garb’s annual recycled fashion show. Since the first bash back at the late great QE2, the event has been as much about imagination as any art exhibition around town, and let’s face it, these folks know how to throw a party, too."

DISCARD AVANT GARB
RECYCLED FASHION SHOW

Saturday, October 17th, 2009 6pm
Grand Street Community Arts Center
Albany, New York
2009 IS OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT!

Discard Avant Garb invites artists to create costumes using recycled and/or non-traditional materials. The pieces are then presented in a fashion show format. All proceeds from the Recycled Fashion Show event go to charity. Having raised close to $20,000.00 in the past for charity, this year's event raised approximately $6,500.00 for our worthy causes: Albany Center Galleries and The Chris Ryan Scholarship Fund at Albany High School. In 2009 we add to the recipient list - in addition to the aforementioned - The Tom Nattell Memorial Scholarship for Poetry and the Grand Street Community Arts Center, our hosts for 2009.
