Slideshow: "The Illusionist" Reconstruct Benefit Fashion Show

Posted By on Sun, Jun 19, 2011 at 11:48 AM

At the Reconstruct Benefit Fashion Show Saturday night models were wearing 95 percent recycled, reused and repurposed materials as they strutted down the catwalk at Flying M Coffeegarage in Nampa. The fifth annual event was a fundraiser for Dress for Success.

Five local designers were put to the challenge of designing outfits around the theme “The Illusionist,” which challenged them to put together creations that were more than what they appeared to be.

Check out a slideshow of the runway, as well as a secondary show with street apparel from Nampa boutique White Pine, a sponsor of the event. Renda Palmer took first place with “Madame Poppy,” an outfit made from a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle and over 250 painted coffee filters. Darcy Beattle and Kay Seurat’s “Magician’s Assistant” came in at second.
