Need some fashion inspiration for upcoming Mardi Gras parties? Looking for ways to stretch your fashion dollars or save the Earth by recycling old clothes into new?

You can get those ideas — or buy runway fashions by local designers — at the Bridge House’s second annual Recycled Fashion Show Friday, Feb. 4, at the Howlin’ Wolf (907 S. Peters St.).

Local designers are selecting items from the Bridge House Thirft Storehttp://www.bridgehouse.org/07thriftstore.htm (1160 Camp St., 525-3130; www.bridgehouse.org/07thriftstore.htm) and turning them into new haute couture that will be featured in a runway fashion show. The designer apparel will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting Bridge House, an alcohol and drug treatment center for the homeless and indigent.

Tickets for the show are $20 in advance or $25 at the door — tickets for VIP seating are $35 — and can be purchased at www.bridgehouse.org or www.howlin-wolf.com.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the show starts at 9 p.m.
