Craven students showcase eco-friendly fashion at Craven Museum

[Monday 27 September 2010]

Eco-couture comes to Craven in the form of tabloid tailoring.

A spectacular fashion show of garments created out of newspaper by Craven students will take to the catwalk on 9 October at Craven District Council’s Craven Museum & Gallery.

Students from Aireville School in Skipton will be showcasing their design skills at the event which will be held as part of the Museum’s Family Fun Day.

During the week, the students will be getting inspiration from the museum’s costume collection to create recycled fashions out of newspapers. Working with artists from Rural Arts in Thirsk, they will be helping Craven District Council’s waste management team to promote paper recycling in the district.

Councillor Chris Knowles-Fitton, Leader of the Council, said: “The event promises to mix glamour and innovation with fun and environmentally friendly ideas. This is a great way to get across a simple message about recycling and sustainability. The students have worked incredibly hard on their creations and the event promises to be spectacular.”

As they are working, the students will be filmed by a video artist from North Yorkshire County Records Office and asked about their views on future sustainability.

The students will display their designs at the fashion show, which will take place at 3pm during the family fun day on 9 October. Families can join in the excitement with recycling and drawing activities from 11am to 4pm. Craven Museum & Gallery is situated in Skipton Town Hall and admission is free. For more details please contact the museum on 01756 706407, cravenmuseum.org or on Facebook.
