Metamorphose logo

St. Vincent de Paul in collaboration with MECCA (Materials Exchange Center for Community Arts) offers a unique opportunity to look at salvaged materials in a new way and raise awareness of creative re-use. We’re looking for 10 local designers to upcycle the waste materials from local businesses, along with resources from one of our thrift stores, into 3 designs of their choosing. These pieces will be featured in our Metamorphose runway show at the Hi-Fi Music Hall on Saturday, April 23rd in honor of Earth Day.  Designers will compete for cash prizes, and will be chosen by the public and a panel of celebrity judges.
