Denim Reconstruction

Last weekend, I went to Los Angeles to the Fashion Symposium to cheer my students on. A team of three participated in a denim deconstruction contest. They began with a pair of white denim jeans and a bag full of 'stuff'. They are given 30 minutes to recreate a garment.

Here is Eva, coming down the runway wearing the team's adorable jacket, and carrying a purse that they created by weaving cut strips of the denim cloth.

Behind her is a bathing suit combo created by another community college.
