For nine weeks, AIR teens met at Wrong Brain in Dover to create wearable art! Led by teaching artist Raven, the designers explored multiple different methods of upcycling. They used block printing, color removal, drawing, embroidery, painting, screen printing, and tie-dying to turn donated fashion into original pieces of self expression.
In “Pile Pick” AIR teens looked through piles of clothes, fabric, and accessories all donated by our AIR community! It was incredible to see the sheer amount of items that were salvaged and used as the media for their ideas.
AIR teens showed off their creations in an alternative community fashion show at The Mall at Fox Run! It was truly a night to remember. Family, friends, and AIR supporters flocked to the celestial runway to witness the out-of-this-world creativity. Audrey Cannon captured all of the photos from the event. First, she captured behind-the-scenes photos of the teens getting ready:
Then , she captured the teens walking down the runway!
In addition to the runway, AIR teens’ remaining work was displayed on mannequins! Audience members could see more of what they created during their time at AIR.
