Check out the burgeoning designers that graced our runway last year! Middle school students and high school students showcased creative thought-provoking designs in the 2011 show. Some used Rubbish Renewed to showcase their talents, while others used Rubbish Renewed as an opportunity to learn a new skill.
Through the new Mentorship Program with Allison Murphy of UtilituSEW, students used Wednesday afternoons to execute and implement their designs. How to install a zipper, pleats, and thread a bobbin were some of the skills they learned. Look for even more students in 2012 show.
