Fur Free Fashion Student and Green winner Rachel Lichtenwalner

Garment description:

This dress was created by upcycling two garments that I purchased at thrift stores. I cut apart both dresses and created this design for under $40. This design was inspired by the fall of the Sui dynasty that ruled China from 581-618CE and the dark period.

Types of materials:

The materials that were used were velvet, chiffon, sequence, and beads.

Interests in fashion:

I am interested in green fashion because I find that it is an interesting yet very challenging form of design. There are many components that are involved in creating a sustainable design. I also think that green fashion is the future of fashion.
