The second day of Eco Fashion Week this season was actually the first day of runway shows, and following the format of past events, was the Value Village sponsored Thrift Challenge day. The first runway show was the Thrift Chic Challenge where three stylists are given a $500 gift card for Value Village, only two weeks before the show is scheduled, and challenged to create an innovative collection. The stylists did very few alterations to the clothing they selected, instead showcasing pieces through their creative ability in putting together the looks.
