CSU design students develop sustainable fashion

The design and merchandising students of the Colorado State University (CSU) have developed environment friendly fashion pieces. These students have created ‘Alice in Wonderland’ theme inspired sustainable fashion that will be displayed at the CSU Avenir Museum Gallery which will host an exhibition titled 'Eco-Fashion: Through the Looking Glass'.

"This exhibit highlights student ingenuity and creativity and, as such, is a delight to behold," said Diane Sparks, design and merchandising professor and exhibit director. "Students in a design foundation course create garment structures using non-traditional and hopefully recycled materials to apply the elements and principles of design."

The 'Alice in Wonderland' theme inspired students to take designs from all the different characters and props in the story, and they did not disappoint. Each unique garment created by students showed their craftiness in turning recycled materials into beautiful clothing.

Students were not allowed to buy any new material for their creations and have used various sustainable materials such as garbage bags, duct tape, zip-lock baggies, tissue paper, comic book pages, playing cards and telephone book pages for their creation.

"We had to keep recycling and sustainability in mind while picking our materials," said one of the students who worked for the exhibit Nicole Pink said. "When I design, I always make sure I waste as little fabric as possible so I can reuse it for other projects." This project showed the serious side of sustainability, but also the playful and wearable side of it, she added.

Director of Avenir Museum Doreen Beard said the Avenir Museum has an exciting future ahead. "In the coming months you can visit not only the students' eco-fashion work, but also exhibitions on bridal apparel, the influence of floral design in 150 years of women's dresses and the influence of the caftan heritage of Morocco," Beard said. "There will also be exhibitions of 35+ years of CSU's Homecoming 5000 t-shirts, 19th century woven coverlets and an exhibition of our Design & Merchandising faculty’s stunning creative work in artistic apparel."
