UA Students Show Forward-Thinking, Transformative Designs at Tee Time Fashion Show
2018 Apr 19
Apparel and Design students from The University of Alabama's College of Human Environmental Sciences showcased their creativity and resourcefulness in the 2018 Tee Time Fashion Show on April 17 on the front lawn of Doster Hall.
Students are asked to create one or two looks that focus on sustainable design. This year's show will feature discarded tee shirts from a local screen printing company. Students must cut up the shirts and create a new garment.
"It is an opportunity for the students to show their designs in public and go through the production of a fashion show," said Brian Taylor, apparel and design instructor.
Because of the focus on sustainability, Tee Time is always held near Green Week and Earth Day celebrations.
"Tee Time is an annual opportunity for students in the apparel design program to experience showing their work for the first time. Not only presenting their work, but giving them an opportunity to design outside of the box," said faculty member Paula Robinson.
