CSU Sustainable Fashion Show

Chelsea Evic

If you’re in the CSU Department of Design and Merchandising, or just a student on campus interested in fashion, you’ve probably heard that the Sustainable Fashion Show is fast approaching. Every other year, the Fashion Group International(FGI) student chapter hosts a fashion show that features garments made from recycled materials. Katherine Ruddy, the co-head of the model and garment committee, says that FGI has been working tirelessly since August to make this event unique and exciting. Their goal is to bring awareness to the community about sustainable fashion and living. It is encouraged to bring any used clothing that you may have to the fashion show which will be donated to the Fort Collins Rescue Mission.


This year, the theme is called “Urban Stars.” They want to capture the elegance of a city at nighttime and incorporate color schemes of dark blues, blacks and reds into the set and garments. There will be 36 pieces featured that are made and modelled by students from all different majors and years. You’ll see creative garments constructed from trash bags, shower curtains, comics, cans, seat belts and more!

The show will take place this Friday, November 9th at 7:00 p.m in the LSC Ballroom. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students and faculty! Come for a great evening of recycled fashion and fun!
