Ethical Fashion – ATRium DIY Fashion Show (Photo heavy!!)

Last week I attended a DIY fashion show in Cardiff’s ATRium.

Design and Promotion students joined together to raise awareness of economical fashion. The students were asked to create a garment using only recycled and used materials, which were then showcased on the runway.

The outfits that they created were absolutely amazing, it was hard to believe that they had been created using all recycled materials, I was super shocked at how creative they were!

Here are my photos from the day…

We also received a goodie bag packed full of discounts and samples 🙂 Here is what I had in mine…

Thank you so much to Lauren for inviting us (read allowing us to tag along) and putting us in the VIP seats! It really was a lovely day and I do love the outfit that Lauren created (they dress with the tyres).

Well done to all the students on the amazing outfits and the organisation, the day ran without a hitch.

Which of these outfits is your fave? I actually decided that the tyre one was my fave before I even knew Lauren had designed it, she was quite impressed that I picked it!

    some great ideas, the newspaper ones are nice and I quite like the pink and purple creation too!

    I'm sorry the link you tried to email me about the rugby nail art stickers kept bouncing back, still not sure why that was, but I had a look on ebay found them, so thanks anyway 🙂
