More Information

In 2011, Elizabeth McLellan, President and Founder, along with other Innovative and creative minds at Partners for World Health (PWH), devised the organization's inaugural, unique and festive fundraising event, Blue Wrap Project Runway. Fashion designers and other artists were invited to create spectacular and unique fashions using discarded Surgical Blue Wrap - around this creative idea a glittering and fun evening was born!

Follow the right arrow below to view individual images of the fashions that were showcased at the last BLUE WRAP PROJECT RUNWAY, presented in Portland, ME in  May 2019 - which raised $110,000 directly supporting PWH's International Container Program.  As well, view the video (approximately 90 seconds) where Elizabeth describes this unique and highly successful event and preview a sampling of models in blue wrap gowns.

Blue Wrap Project Runway 2022 - Merrill Auditorium May 19, 2022

As unique in its execution as the mission of Partners for World Health, Blue Wrap Project Runway is an exciting mix of a fashion extravaganza and entertainment. Local, national and international designers will work with ‘Blue Wrap’ to create fantastic, whimsical and unique fashion. Blue Wrap is a polypropylene material that is used in every hospital in the US to sterilize equipment and is discarded after one use. Designers face the challenge of working with a non-traditional material to create beauty from the discarded. Joining our fashion show from the world of entertainment and hosted by our MC, Tory Ryden are Ron Raines - Man of La Mancha, Maeve Hoglund - Opera Star, Susie Pepper and Mixology, Henry Kramer - Classical Pianist, Portland Ballet, The International Girls Choir, and the Burundi Drummers for a one of a kind evening to support Partners for World Health: Helping people lead healthy lives of a healthy planet. 

Blue Wrap Project Runway - Sponsorship Opportunities 2022

As unique in its execution as the mission of Partners for World Health, Blue Wrap Project Runway is a moveable feast that looks to raise $250,000 in 2022. Blue Wrap Project Runway is an exciting mix of a fashion extravaganza featuring national and international talent working with an unusual fabric, ‘Blue Wrap’ to create fantastic, whimsical and unique items. Blue Wrap is a polypropylene material that is used in every hospital in the US to sterilize equipment and is discarded after one use. Designers face the challenge of working with a non-traditional material to create beauty from the discarded.

 

To supplement the fashion show Partners for World Health features musical entertainment and education about the mission, programs, and continuing success of our work. The last show was held in May of 2019 and raised $143,000. Blue Wrap Project Runway is back and will be held at the Merrill Auditorium on Thursday, May 19, 2022.

 

This is a fashion show with a purpose that not only raises money and awareness for the work of PWH but demonstrates and showcases the talents of designers, models, stylists and entertainers in their commitment to the environment, lowering healthcare costs and delivering humanitarian aid. 

 

It is the intent of Blue Wrap Project Runway 2022 to elevate our profile and educate not only those in Maine and New England about the work of Partners for World Health, but to launch us onto the national stage and to invite major support and investment for the mission and programs of PWH to provide medical equipment and supplies, training and education to our partners at home and throughout the developing world.
