A fashion show of restyled and upcycled discarded clothing!
The fashion industry has a disastrous impact on the environment. It is the second largest polluter in the world, second only to the oil industry. Upcycled fashion reduces fashion waste and is one answer to the increasing environmental damage of the fashion industry. This upcycled fashion show will include examples of altering used clothing into a variety of fashion styles including Boho Chic, Lagenlook, Post-Apocalyptic, Street Wear, Ethnic, Sophisticated Casual and Goth.
