Sanford-Brown College (SBC) Seattle - Fashion Students Sweep Washington State Recycled Fashion Show in Vancouver May 5, 2014
May 22, 2014, Seattle, Wa –Top “trashion” designers and upcycling aficionados shared their unique creations made from 100% used, discarded and repurposed materials during Washington State Recycling Association’s (WRSA) second annual Recycled Fashion Show at the Vancouver Hilton Ballroom May 5, 2014. SBC Seattle students walked away with all three Audience Awards: Tetra Bergstrom – Gold, Mary Grassl – Silver, and Wendy Hawkins – Bronze. Monir Zandghoreishi, Lead Faculty of Fashion Design and Merchandising for the Seattle campus, was on the board of the fashion show and is very proud of the excellence and hard work shown by her students.
Gold Medal winner Tetra Bergstrom’s creation included handmade wings made from Pepsi cans.
The goal of the show is to raise awareness about the vast array of materials we accumulate and encourages participants and audience members to think creatively about reuse and recycling. Every outfit to hit the catwalk was made by hand, and showcases many materials that were otherwise landfill-bound.
