The models were wearing construction materials or other unconventional attire.

The third annual event, which also included a silent auction for Douglas County Habitat for Humanity, featured 22 modeling acts who took to the runway wearing duct tape, aluminum screening, sheet-metal squares, shingles and other creative materials. A panel of judges awarded prizes for "most wearable fashion," "crowd pleaser," "material miracles" and "show stopper." There was also a People's Choice award.
