The Columbia Design League’s Runaway Runway is a design competition that brings together talented designers to turn trash into sustainable fashion treasures. The event is Columbia's premiere spring fashion show and highlights the value of recycling and living green. From the young, hip and creative to long time patrons of the arts in Columbia, everyone marvels at what designers can create from such a variety of used materials such as coffee filters, bottle caps, empty containers, industrial scraps, newspapers and plastic bags. The Meet the Designers: Runaway Runway invitational exhibit is comprised of designers ranging from diverse backgrounds, ages, and experiences, and features entries from the 2012 event, highlighting the conceptual and construction process behind each outfit.
