Our 9th annual show will be held on April 25th at the Recital Hall and Arts Plaza.
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.
Get ready for the 9th Annual Eco-Fashion & Art Show happening on April 25th at Recital Hall from 6:30-8pm! Eco-Fashion & Art Show is an event hosted by the Center for Sustainability, SCU Presents, and the Sustainability Student Advisory Board where students, faculty, staff, and alumni create outfits out of recyclable and waste materials. This free event is open to everyone from SCU and the surrounding community!
In addition to the show, enjoy food, educational booths, plus the opportunity to interact with Burning Man’s very own “Re-Cyclone” art sculpture, created by artist Martin Taylor. Optional: Bring an article of clothing to donate! Doors open at 6:30pm and Runway starts at 7pm! Hope to see you all there!
