On Friday, April 22, Project Greenway celebrated Earth Day in recycled fashion. Aspiring artists and designers displayed their accessories and walked the runway, with the majority of the pieces being made out of natural or recycled materials.
The three judges, Patti Bridge, a fashion teacher at Oswego High School, Angela Sharbert, a fashion teacher at Oswego East High School, and Nicole Weiler, a college representative for FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, critiqued all entries, along with community members voting for People’s Choice Accessory.
