1st Eco-Friendly Fashion Show
In 2010, TYWLS MCC hosted their very first Eco-Friendly Fashion Show. Our first Eco-Fashion event was fairly simple, however the student’s hard work and collaboration was able to transform the school gym into a respectable runway. Granting, this was a project that targeted the 9th grade, it got attention from students around the school and therefore, students from different grades took upon themselves to create their own dresses.
As a teacher, this project opened my eyes to what it truly means to collaborate, inspire, and explore. Hours before the show, there were students helping others get dressed, put on makeup, and fix their hair. The show opened with a series of movies, which described the designs created, in Spanish, using iMovie. Once the lights were turned off, the remix echoed throughout the gym and lights dominated the runway.
