Fashion Bailout: Recycle the Recession, a spring 2009 fashion show featuring apparel created by students from recycled items, will be presented by CSU students at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 24 at Suite 152, 23 Old Town Square No.152. The show is presented by members of Fashion Group International, a student-run chapter of the non-profit, professional organization.

Tickets available at the door

Tickets are $8 for CSU students with a valid student ID and $10 for adults, payable at the door. Ages 18 and up are welcome to attend. 

'Green,' clever designs 

The runway will feature student designs and local boutique ensembles. All student designs were created using recyclable materials. Clever art-wear and designs will inspire a little more 'green' in spring wardrobes.

The Fashion Bailout show is entirely produced by students who combine their efforts to produce a show that recognizes important issues effecting society. This year, the group recognizes how the economy is impacting the fashion industry through the theme, Fashion Bailout: Recycle the Recession. The show also pays tribute to CSU's recurring theme of being green.

"The student designers make outfits out of anything and everything you can think of," said Ashley Fick, president of the CSU chapter of Fashion Group International. "It is also a great opportunity to support the design and merchandising students."
