Decades revisited in this Friday’s Young At Art recycled fashion show
The ninth annual recycled fashion show at Young At Art Museum will be this Friday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. In honor to celebrate the museum’s 25th anniversary, this year’s teen designers will restyle the trends of past decades.
As in all previous fashion shows, all attire in this “Decades Restyled!” show will be created by used and recycled materials. That includes everything from bottle caps to newspapers to even juice boxes.
The event will include hors d'oeuvres and libations, nail art, a recycled jewelry-making station by Levinson Jewelers and “up-cycled” IKEA décor. All of this followed by one-of-a-kind, edgy clothing designed by teens showcased on a supercharged New York-style runway.
Renowned fashion consultant and author Mary Giuseffi, who has appeared on Oprah, 48 Hours, The Montel Williams Shows and ABC News, will host the show. And all proceeds from Decades Restyled! will be used to support Young At Art’s teen leadership and other pioneering programs.
These are three looks we loved from last year’s Superheroes Restyled fashion show.
