Rubbish on the runway

Fashion students took waste from cast-off to catwalk earlier this month in a fashion show held at Sheffield City Hall.



Recycling in action on the runway

Organised by waste management company Veolia for some of its 2,500 Recycling Champions club members, the event was aimed at encouraging more recycling in the city. As well as creating an opportunity to involve the local community.

Twenty students from Hillsborough College were asked to select a favourite designer who inspired them and create a garment using only recycled materials.

Winning the top prize of £1,000 was Josephine Jones, who created a beautiful garment made from cast-offs from the Lloyd Loom factory. Jennifer Williams came second for her recreation of Christian Dior’s New Look in bubble wrap, and Sui-Ann Lui came third for her creation of a newspaper jacket, bubble wrap trousers and flip flops made from card and plastic bottle tops.
