D.I.Y. Runway

Bring Vancouver’s best style off the streets and into your home! DIY Runway is your chance to bid on hand-crafted, repurposed pieces created by Vancouver’s top style influencers and tastemakers. We’ve recruited 15 local fashion bloggers, stylists, designers, and boutique owners to draw inspiration from a favourite item in their own closet to repurpose a pre-loved home décor piece from ReStore Vancouver using a curated box of goods from Rust-Oleum Consumer Brands Canada®. Imagine: a wall-hanging inspired by those perfectly ripped jeans, or a one-of-a-kind lamp inspired by that amazing sequined skirt worn on New Year’s Eve. 100% of silent auction proceeds benefit the Habitat for Humanity Society of Greater Vancouver to help provide local families with a safe, affordable place to live.
