FASHION :: COUTURevolution

This past Sunday I attended the second annual COUTURevolution fashion show in Chapel Hill. The show featured sustainable fashions designed by UNC students and my dear roommate Liz was one of the models. Designers used vintage fabrics, recycled fabrics and natural fibers to create stunning outfits.

It was held outdoors in the beautiful Forest Theater and we couldn't have asked for better weather. 75 and sunny. Oh fab.

I was so impressed with the amount of work the volunteers put in as well as how creative and AWESOME some of the styles were. Here were my favorites:

 LOVE the back of this dress!

 Oh look! It's my roommate!
 Yes, that is a skirt made out of newspaper.
 This one stole the show. Isn't it gorgeous? It is entirely made out of newspaper. Even better, it is all created from the Daily Tar Heel, UNC's newspaper. Stunning.

Doesn't she look fierce? You can check out the rest of the professional photos by Chris Florio here.

Which design is your favorite?

Happy Tuesday!

  2. This looks like so much fun, I'd have to say my favorite is definitely the newspaper gown. What is the one your roommate is wearing made out of? It looks really interesting!
