NC State’s 10th annual Art to Wear fashion show once again brought together some of the most creative minds on campus to show the latest in art and design. In an inspired show, student designers displayed a range of fashion – from haute couture to mass-market ready apparel. As in previous years, a theme seen in numerous collections was the use of recycled or ‘upcycled’ materials – from price tags, to copper pennies to used industrial air filters – that had attendees once more wondering if the future of fashion is in sustainable design.
More mainstream collections mixed bright colors and fabric textures to create bold and beautiful pieces. The show, held at Reynolds Coliseum, once again drew thousands of attendees making it one of the most successful annual fashion shows held in the state.
