Upcycled Denim Collection- Runway 4.0
Buffalo State College - Fashion Show 2011
Project Runway inspired Wearable Art Fashion Show

Collection Designed by Carol Ann Rice Rafferty
Head Stylist Kara Rice Rafferty
Student Stylist Rachael Mancini
Hair by Vanity Salon
Makeup by Estee Lauder (Macys - Walden Galleria)

The collection was inspired by 60's Mod design aesthetics with a current twist (halter tops, short tiered skirts, vest, poncho). Denim bib necklaces and rainbow tulle birdcage veils add a whimsical quality symbolic of the Psychedelic Era and Pop Art.

100% repurposed materials - denim from old jeans, vintage 60s fabric, up cycled buttons and brooches

The wearable art installation at the VIP party included three garments on modelinas on display and two models wearing the garments. Our models Crystal and Alicia acted as living art sculptures moving about the VIP party like mimes. All items were made from up cycled plastic bags. The installation was brought to life by the models performance art segment.
Special thanks to Alicia and Crystal!
