Each year, FABRIC hosts Eco Fashion Week which begins with the reFABRICate Fashion Show. This year, FABRIC has partnered with Tempe Marketplace, and Dave & Busters. The reFABRICate Fashion Show will feature designs upcycled from repurposed denim jeans donated by shoppers at Tempe Marketplace. The jeans will be redesigned/upcycled by FABRIC members (established and emerging designers & brands) as well as fashion teachers & students. The designs will be featured on the stage at Tempe Marketplace. The "RunzWithScissors" award will be presented to the best-repurposed denim design.
