Cirque du Couture, a fashion show featuring apparel designs created by CSU students from recycled materials, was Thursday, Dec. 1.
The featured designs all used about 75 percent recyclable materials including pop can tabs, trash bags and paper. Three different categories were featured in the show: a general category, garments that followed the circus theme of the show, and the ‘dress for less’ submission, featuring outfits purchased at second hand stores with a strict budget of $30 or less.
The show is put on by CSU student members of Fashion Group International of Denver. The CSU students are studying in the Department of Design and Merchandising, part of the College of Applied Human Sciences.
