We are witness to a lot of fashion shows in our age and in line with the go green movement, a trash fashion show was recently conducted at the Moore College of Arts and Design which featured more than twenty eco-friendly fashions by Moore’s Basic Design students with garments made from recycled and reused items.
If you think of it, you can really make something out of trash if you really want to. They are the same materials and while we often want better quality consumer goods, there are some materials that we can really reuse if we want to.
The Trash Fashion Show is the final project for the Basics Design class taught by Jack Thompson, professor of fine arts 3D and basics. Timed for the same week as Earth Day, the event has students constructing garments using items such as electrical tape, soy packets, shower curtains, used candy wrappers, phone wire and old CDs.
