First, there’s window displays at three different boutiques done by students: Julia and Lola at River Park and Madeleine’s Bridal in Clovis. The displays are a visual merchandising class project. They’ll be up for the next few days, maybe weeks. The Madeleine’s Bridal one is particularly interesting as it was installed before the rodeo and yes, it’s got a country-themed bride and groom, including what looks like a lassoed groom. Keep scrolling for more pictures.
Also, now through May 14 at the Fresno City College Library you can see outfits made from recycled newspapers, CDs, trash bags, paint swatches, even pop tops from soda cans. The outfits were made by students in a fashion merchandising class. The Recycled Fashion Library Exhibit is designed to bring attention to the ethical issues of fashion, including the 70 pounds of clothing per household that ends up in a landfill each year. (By the way, many thrift shops do recycle clothing, including Neighborhood Thrift and most Goodwill stores. Just drop it off with your donations.)
