Goodwill Industries serving Summit, Portage, Medina, Ashland and Richland Counties is partnering with Ashland University’s fashion merchandising students to hold a special fashion show on Thursday, Oct. 30, at 7 p.m. in Myers Convocation Center on the Ashland University campus.
The free event, themed “Green is the New Black,” will feature creations made from textiles and other items found at Goodwill’s Ashland store as well as other recyclable material.
“We are excited to partner with the fashion students at Ashland University for this creative fashion show,” said Greg Morton, vice president, mission services and public relations, for Goodwill Industries serving Summit, Portage, Medina, Ashland and Richland Counties. “We look forward to seeing how the students take gently-used items and make them into a new creation -- supporting thrift shopping as well as upcycling and recycling in the community. When individuals shop and donate to Goodwill, they are supporting our mission to help individuals prepare for, find and retain employment in the community.”
