Theme Thursday: Earth Day Fashion Show

The planet: Earth.

The year: 2222.

Our Earth has become so littered with trash that all factories have shut down, making it impossible for new clothes to be made.

Their mission: Create a piece of clothing (or whole outfit) using only recycled materials.

Result: The Earth Day Fashion Show
















































Apologies for the sorry blurryness of some of these photos. I have a whole new appreciation now for runway photographers!

What a great way to bring earth awareness to the kids! They look like they had lots of fun, for sure. I'm diggin that soda bottle helmet, oh, what they come up with ;)

Love it, Jen! So much creativity, and the "runway models" looked like they were having a great time. I loved a lot of them, but my fave was the top hat. Whoa! Willy Wonka, eat your heart out!

What a wonderful and creative project. Makes me want to design recycled coutre. I have an early 60's photo of my brother in a costume similar to the first one. Loved the soda bottle hat. Fun.

Those were very clever fashions and the kids look like they were having a great time modeling.

That was tons of fun. I took some notes in case we end up there in a few weeks. Those kids were smart about putting outfits together.

The best catwalk, yet! Happy Earth Day.

Trash Fash --loving it. for my personal award, I choose the skirt which appears to be made of newspaper color inserts and the top hat / A&P vest combo!!!

Squirrel said...

if your camera has a setting for sports, I'd click on that for the next trash fash show.
