ART PHOTOS | Elements Fashion Show 2014: U of M students compete with their designs at the Weisman Art Museum


On Wednesday, April 23, 2014, the Weisman Art Museum hosted the Elements Design Competition and Runway Show for University of Minnesota fashion and design students. The theme for the show students had to follow “drew upon the landscapes, materials, textures, and traditions of Siberia, while also responding to the environmental questions the region raises,” as described by Weisman’s website. Students considered topics such as sustainable design, environmental issues, and labor support structures in the garment industry. They also took into consideration how garment production exploits or depletes resources, and what types of work conditions laborers experience while manufacturing garments.
