The students spent “weeks” designing their eco-friendly creations for an eco-fashion show at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT).

It’s about environmental awareness and creating a space for students also outside of fashion design to showcase their talents, says student development officer Melani-Ann Hara.

The creation of Alex Bukasa, an environmental management student, is an example of this interdisciplinary approach. He used plastic and unused fabric in the design of his garment.

The Green Campus Initiative Fashion Show begins at 5 p.m. Saturday at CPUT’s Bellville Campus Gym. The objective of the exhibition is to show how materials can be reused.

It’s also to create a social space where students can connect after COVID… and learn how they can reduce, reuse and recycle.
