Funky Fashion In Progress

We've all been inspired by our research into the Wearable Arts, we visited the WOW museum for the real experience and now are busy creating our own garments for the Eco Fest Funky Fashion Show!
On a Tuesday Room 13 has been transformed into a designers workroom with hot glue guns, scissors, needle and thread,and tape along with all kinds of reuseable items. We have set criteria we must keep to, one of these being that our garments must be made out of reuseable or recycled materials!
We have learnt about Claire Prebble and how WOW inspired her from the age of 8, she now works for Weta Workshop on movies such as Avatar.
There are definate future designers working in Room 13 on a Tuesday, we have dresses created out of reciepts, armour made from tin cans, a huge collection of used CD's transformed into never before seen fashion - and that is to name just a few!
The Funky Fashion Show is held during Eco Fest in August - we now just need to finish our designs and have them accepted, so it's all hands on deck!
