Local Artists Make Fashion Out of Trash | Arts & Culture
For one night this month, North Idaho was too sexy for Milan, New York and Japan. The Idaho Panhandle got their share of eco-friendly attire on Friday, October 14th, during a sold-out fashion show. The runway photos are in.
Every year, Kootenai Environmental Alliance hosts Junk2Funk, a collection of runway fashion created from trash and recycled materials.
Local artists used a menagerie of materials including candy wrappers, paper bags and used bike tubes.
Photo Gallery: That might not sound like fashion, but take a look at the photos from the event and you’ll think otherwise.
