---------------------------------------------------
Eco-friendly Fashion was started after a friend of mine notified me about a contest taking place in our city. The challenge was to create a wearable outfit entirely out of recycled materials such as pop-cans, newspaper, old fabric, etc.

Sound crazy? Well,I know I've seen some crazy designs out there before; Our group icon, for example, shows a tuxedo & bow-tie made of coke cans, and three dresses: one of pop cans, the second of Fiji Water Bottles, and the last from Skittles wrappers.

Do a little research- I can almost guarantee you'll be shocked at how pretty dresses made from recycled goods can be.

Now I'd like to see what all you lovely fashionistas/fashionistos on Deviant Art can come up with. Any outfit is allowed as long as it's made of recycled materials.
Submit your photos and sketches; Let's see what you've got ;)

------------

[If anyone knows of a similar contest in their area please let us know and we'll post the information asap.]

Hey, Techcycled here, I was just popping in to see if you'd help me get to word out to help the earth with my journal: [link]
It's been a project I've been trying to get done for a while, and I'd love to see the earth a better place.
Hope you all have a wonderful Love Day! :heart:

Hello!
I was wondering if a member of the Group was willing to help me with a project. The project is to drape a complete outfit that is not made of fabric. The reason why I need help is I do not have all the funds to create NINE complete outfits during this semester!

If they wish to help me they get to create the design and KEEP the outfit!:3
In return for covering the cost of materials and the shipping the garment out to them.

Requirements:
The garment must be made completely out of ANYTHING but fabric.
The size of the garment is limited to woman's size 6-14 or Man's size 40 Wolf professional Dress form. (their are a limited number of forms, I can't promises your size)
It is due by March and if you wish to wait for your garment I can put it in the school's Fashion Show on May 5 and give you credit!

Note me if anyone is interested! :D
