At New Mexico State University, members of the Aggie Fashion Club turned trash into treasure by upcycling salvaged materials in a sustainable fashion show in the Corbett Center Student Union Aggie Lounge on Thursday, April 18. 

The theme, “Book it to the Runway,” allowed student designers to create paper-bag dresses, plastic skirts and other sustainable clothing items inspired by literature such as “The Hunger Games” and “Alice in Wonderland.” 

Just a few days before Earth Day, volunteer models showcased the designs on the student-made catwalk while educating the community on ways to recycle clothes in Las Cruces.
