Fashion (re)Cycles

Austin has always been a town on the forefront of green initiatives, and our fashion shows are now no exception. The Austin Museum of Art is hosting a fashion show during Austin Fashion Week with a novel idea – local designers create from materials recycled by their own community. From the release:

Local designers transform recycled materials into wearable works of art!  Inspired by Chris Jordan’s photographs about consumption and environmental issues.  Keep Austin Beautiful, who has been inspiring environmental stewardship for 25 years in our community, provided Austin designers with recycled materials.  In the spirit of fashion design programs like Project Runway, come see how the designers transformed plastic bags, innertubes, computer cables, vinyl banners and more!

This looks to be an awesome event and is a great way to support established and up-and-coming talent from our own backyard.
