Nichols School's Fashion Laboratory class, a fashion design course offered in our Upper School, recently competed in a Non-traditional Materials Challenge like on the television show Project Runway. Ms. Besl's class created original garments out of recyclable materials and held a "trashion show," and the class learned about how trashion is fashion made from thrown out, found and repurposed items used to draw attention to global waste created from disposable or fast fashion. Watch the video here to learn all about their competition.
Tomorrow morning at 8 a.m., the class will host Nichols' annual Trashion Fashion Prom Dress Competition. Students can compete to win a pair of prom tickets by constructing gowns out of newspaper and other items from a mystery box on the Flickinger Performing Arts Center stage during Upper School's Morning Meeting. Good luck to all of our designers!
