Marion Made Fashion Show

Marion Cinema House proudly presented The True Cost, a documentary about fast fashion and its affects on low-wage workers overseas. The film was shown on Friday June 8th, 2018

The True Cost looks at the negative effects of the fast fashion industry pertaining to human rights, agriculture, and business. The clothing donated, after being donated and re-purposed, will be shown in the fashion show to highlight the power or reusing.

Join the Marion Cinema House and Marion Design Co. for Marion Made, a fashion show inspired by the screening on Friday June 29th, 2018 at 8pm.

The clothing, after being donated and re-purposed, will be featured in "Marion Made" on June 29th, 8pm as a means to highlight the power of reusing. We believe that when you consider creative clothing solutions that are sustainable, environmentally-friendly, and fair-trade, you empower people far beyond your reach.
