Students are asked to create one or two looks that focus on a mix of sustainable design using alternative materials or knit jersey fabrics. This year's show featured a number of re-purposed denim fabrics, bridesmaid dresses and, for those old enough to remember them, Laura Ashley dresses.
"It's basically an opportunity for sophomore and junior students to get outside the box," said fashion instructor Paula Robinson.
Brian Taylor, an instructor in apparel and design added, “It is an opportunity for the students to experience showcasing their designs to the public and going through the production of a fashion show."
"It helps them not be afraid to get out in front of people," Robinson said. "And every artist and designer is always afraid to get out and do that."
