at weisman art museum last thursday, the no white fashion show presented 16 finalists from a design competition who created looks that depicted the dark side behind fairy tales. take a look at the no white lookbook for each designer's story behind their look and their sketches. each design incorporated an upcycled element such as reusing scrapped fabric from previous projects, dying thrift store drapes for a dress, and finding old jewelry to sew onto a jacket. another challenge designers had to face: these designs had to be wearable. a few of the designs really stood out - and the judges seemed to agree. i managed to snap a few pictures of my favorite designs during the show.
