Where to start?
If you're thinking about being a designer, you don't need experience, just an idea!
Save the date!
Our 9th annual show will be held in February 2019 in the Dowd Art & Art History building.
The Eco-Fashion & Art Show is a night of learning and celebration of art with eco-fashion on the runway, showcasing the talents of Santa Clara students, faculty, staff, and alumni!
Designers are asked to reuse old or recyclable materials that would normally have to go to the landfill to make a piece of art that is durable (can be worn again or can be recycled completely after the show) and looks fashionable. No money should be spent on this project, so designers are using old clothes that they don't wear anymore and collecting scraps of fabric and other materials!
What, besides “trash” and recycling, is this show about?
The fashion industry! We’ll be talking about the impact of fashion on economic, social, and environmental levels, including the lives of the factory workers that manufacture the clothes we wear, the impact of our clothing’s dyes, and other ties that are related to the environment and sustainability.
