Trash Fash 2018
Pop tabs, plastic bags, paint sample cards, newspapers and an old blanket — those were some of the things EKU students recycled to create wearable artwork for the Trash Fash 2018 runway show.
The annual event promotes recycling on campus and urges students to find alternate uses for their refuse. About 25 students competed for cash prizes and gift cards by designing apparel from materials that were bound for the waste bin. Their creations ranged from elegant to outrageous.
Trash Fash 2018 was sponsored by EKU’s Office of Sustainability and took place March 29 in the Keen Johnson Ballroom.
