This Friday night at UAlbany models will be strutting down the catwalk in clothing that's just garbage.
Really. It's trash. Actual trash.
In the SUNY Albany Artists Cooperative's green fashion show, "Ecouture: Reuse, Refuse, Refashion" twenty models will be showing off fashions made with reusable, recyclable items including old clothing, paper and plastic trash. The group promises they'll even be accessorizing with purses, shoes and hats also made from discarded materials.
The show is being held in conjunction with artist Jason Middlebrook's installation piece at the University Art Museum, "Live With Less."
There will be demonstrations and workshop demos on how to make ecouture clothing and create stencils from recyclable materials. Local businesses have donated food and door prizes, and The Honest Weight Co-op is providing some of the food. The whole event is free and open to the public.
Friday, April 3 - 5 to 9 p.m.

The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
