Trash is “in” at Mississippi State University’s eighth annual Trashion Show.

Free and open to the public, the event takes place Wednesday [Nov. 9] at 7 p.m. in Giles Hall.

The National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS), in collaboration with MSU fashion design and merchandising students, will work to design custom outfits made of recycled goods and modeled by MSU’s Fashion Board.

The event’s theme, “Diametric Parallels,” encourages designers to discover something common between two seemingly opposite materials.

Past creations have been assembled from bottle caps, straws, soda cans, newspaper, playing cards and more.

“It’s a creative look at design elements with the incorporation of unconventional materials that promote sustainability,” said Diondria Bingham, senior architecture major from Pearl who is serving as NOMAS president.

For questions or further information about the show, contact Bingham at dmb514@msstate.edu

MSU is Mississippi’s leading university, available online at www.msstate.edu.

The sixth annual NOMAS Trashion Show is set for Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. in Giles Hall.

Put on by the School of Architecture, the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students and the MSU Fashion Board, this year’s “High Trashion-” themed show will feature designs created by students using recycled materials.

Past creations have been constructed out of bottle caps, bubble wrap, Coke cans, duct tape and more.

The third annual “Junk to Funk Sale” will start at 3 p.m. the day of the show. It is a profit sharing event for students who make custom products to sell them in the Giles Hall Gallery. For more information, visit http://caad.msstate.edu/wpmu/nomas/

The Trashion Show and “Junk to Funk Sale” usually bring in 200-300 people.
