Recycled Fashion

Published on Tue, April 05, 2011

Interior Architecture students designed outfits out of recycled material for the Twelfth Annual Dress for Success Fashion Show. Newspaper ball gowns, paint -swatch shirts, and magazine dresses were just some of the earth-friendly fashions created.

"My design is wine corks from the restaurant that I work at. They are recycled. I asked them to collect them for me. The ribbon my mom makes bows. So, she had all of this extra ribbon," said Kim Becker, Marywood University Interior Architecture student.

The mission of Dress for Success is giving underprivileged women professional clothing to help them succeed in the workplace and in life.
