More Glimpses of Things to Come at the 2012 IAC Trashion Show
The 2012 IAC Trashion Show: Couture Garbáge takes place this Friday, March 30th, upstairs at the Coney, and the designs made by the students of the IUP Fashion Association and Professor Steve Loar’s 3-D Design class are finally coming together. This past Sunday, Trashion Designers met in the 3-D Design classroom on IUP campus to have some of their completed work featured in the Indiana Gazette and the Penn. On Tuesday, Designer Stephanie Schrider from the IUP Fashion Association previewed a few of her designs at the Indiana’s Cookin’ show: Candemonium.
Amanda Harned and another student, Kara, are in charge of providing and setting up decorations for the fashion show at The Coney this Friday. They will also be submitting their own designs to be featured in the fashion show: a dress made from catalogues and packing paper made by Kara, and another dress made of newspapers and an old t-shirt designed by Amanda. They and other designers from the IUP Fashion Association say they have enjoyed having the opportunity to work with such unusual materials. “It’s different from designing clothes from fabric,” said Amanda . “I’ve enjoyed being able to think of what to do. There’s endless possibilities with how you can use trash.”
Students of Professor Steve Loar’s 3-D Design class were also present at last weekend’s photo shoot, working on their wearable sculptural pieces to feature in the show. A wide range of animals will be represented by these sculptures. One student is currently working on a piece that will represent a toucan, made from a five-gallon water container, detergent bottles, and plastic caps.
For a closer look at some of the individual sculptural pieces of the 3-D Design class, see the pictures below!
