Young At Art Museum’s 17th Annual Recycled Fashion Show: South Florida Wild Restyled was on Saturday, April 13 from 5-8pm! As YAA marks three and a half decades of igniting teen imagination, we proudly showcased the innovative, environmentally mindful creations of local designers from Broward high schools and PACE Center for Girls. The night was full of inspiring sustainable couture, interactive art experiences, decadent refreshments, and an exclusive raffle. Proceeds from the event support YAA’s Museum Programming and Community Initiatives, empowering low-income families and at-risk teen girls. It was an unforgettable evening of fashion and philanthropy!

Congratulations Girls!
