Reuse, Recycle, REVIVE

In fashion,” Green is the new Black.”  This year’s Fashion Promotion Class promoted the Green Theme  in its second annual Eco-Friendly Fashion show, Reuse, Recycle, REVIVE.  The show was the highlight of Ashland University’s Earth Week 2011.  Over 400 people were in attendance.

The show featured a Design Competition which exhibited creative and carefully crafted designs by Fashion Merchandising students.  The garments were required to be made of reused or recycled materials.  Thirty-three interesting designs were submitted made from such things as coffee filters, trash bags, newspaper, and old graduation gowns.  The Design Competition winners included:
