The scene at the Discarded to Divine event put on by St.
Vincent de Paul Society of
was truly delightful. Hundreds of fashion enthusiasts gathered at the Gensler
celebrated not only their love of fashion, but also their compassion for charity. It wasn’t your average fashion show with runways and bright lights, but it was
sophisticated, fun, and for a great cause!
The Crowd: Men in suits, teenage girls with metallic belts
and purses, ladies in skirts and jeans.
The Food: Finger foods like shrimp, guacamole, carrots,
broccoli, celery, and crackers.
The Clothes: Different pieces were sewn together by SF State and FIDM students to make funky
outfits. We saw a wife-beater-turned-dress, a jacket with unique
patches sewn on the back, and a long dress with a head piece reminiscent of the dress of women from the Middle East.
The Models: Amateur models with heavy makeup and teased hair
strutted their stuff while guests nibbled away.
