Reused and Recyled clothing

Recycling old products into new items was the idea behind a fashion show in Marquette Thursday night. Area designers have put their talents on display after reusing old and worn out clothes.

Garden Bouquet and Design sponsored its Third Annual (re)Design Fashion show and open design contest. Local designers and fashion artists took old worn out clothing and married them together with out of style pieces to create runway ready styles. Designers used many different types of up–cycled textiles. Anything from old curtains to thrown out formal attire. All proceeds from the (re)Design Fashion Show will benefit the Marquette Regional History Center.
