Debunking Junk: Fashion with a Message

A December 5 presentation put together by three Delicate Balance students will have all the trappings of a fashion show - a parade of models showing showing off original designs on a runway. But this is not your typical fashion show.

"Our goal was to make each garment from donated, found or recycled material," said Amanda Elder '10. One design titled "Agriculture" is composed of corn stalks and husks fringed with kale. Like all the pieces in the show, there is a message to it.

"The agriculture dress recognizes America's obsession with corn-based products. The kale represents the relatively small amount of crops grown aside from corn," said Cody Currier '11.

Currier, Elder and James Robinson '10 created 12 unique pieces of clothing that comment on topics related to sustainability and social justice including overpopulation, safe sex, the influence of corporate-controlled mass-media, water quality, agriculture/monocropping, and America's disposable culture. Each model will incorporate a performance aspect relating to the theme, from monologues and poems to interpretative dance.

Debunking Junk is free and open to the public. In the spirit of the event, salvaged or donated food will be served. The show begins at 7 p.m. in the Gorge.
