Salvage – green fashion and design at KSU

Every year, for the past 25-30 years, Kent State Fashion Student Organization, American Institute of Architecture Students and the Interior Design Student Collaboration put on the Beaux Arts Ball. This event serves as a fundraiser for the organizations as well as a fantastic excuse for everyone to drink, jive and watch a fashion show. Not too shabby.display4

This year, the event’s theme is Salvage – a completely green-geared event. It’s Friday, Nov.7 in the Kent Student Center Ballroom. It starts at 8 p.m. and the fashion show starts at 10 p.m.

When my interior design friend, Lindsey Ray told me about the event, I’m pretty sure I clapped my hands in excitement. It just goes to show that there’s a place and demand for green practices in every industry.

Ray said not only will the fashion show feature natural and recycled material, but the decorations and promotional efforts are also “salvaged.”

“We wanted to really take a holistic approach to this green idea. Last year we printed tons of posters,” said Ray. “This year we only had 160 printed and we’re branching out to more online promotion to save paper.”

Ray said they’re emphasizing word of mouth, Facebook and emails. It’s good to see the green consideration being carried out through all steps of the event. No green posing here.
