For the 2nd year in a row, Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona has partnered with Pima Community College’s Fashion Textiles Class. As part of their final project on sustainable fashion, PCC Fashion students were tasked with upcycling clothing found at Goodwill stores into high fashion garments for the 2020 PCC FashionArte Show in May.
Project Profile – Elizabeth Webb
Elizabeth has given herself an extra challenge. Rather than using existing clothing as the base for her new pieces, she is creating them entirely from scratch using sheets and curtains she found at Goodwill. She is planning on creating an entire ensemble consisting of a purple dress with ruffles, a yellow corset, and a pink lacy jacket to complete the look.
Elizabeth is balancing her unique vision with the requirement that the project fit in the class’s overall brand. She says, “My final project is going to be really feminine and flowy. It’s going to have the matching color scheme which is going to be the light, muted colors.”
