Yr 9 Style Junkies

Year 9 students are on a mission to turn trash into a fantastic costume as part of Merton’s Mega Recycle project.

During the first of two morning workshops, students started designing a high-end outfit from recycled and reworked materials such as crisp packets, polystyrene plastic bottles, paper and textiles.  Students quickly got down to work and the art room soon resembled a fashion designers’ workshop. Here is a selection of their still-to-be finished creations. Flowing trains made of plastic bottle tops or newspapers were transformed into stunning art.  With a second workshop to come, we can’t wait to see the finished garments.
