On February 17, Endicott College got a bit more avant-garde. Student models of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds took to Cleary Lecture Hall for Endicott's first sustainability-inspired Fashion Show—the brainchild of Gabrielle Blum ’22 and Michaela Ellison ’22, two members of the Endicott College Architecture and Design Club (ECAD).
The fashion show was part of the College’s Campus Race to Zero Waste, so Blum and Ellison invited student clubs and organizations to design a look using unconventional materials, including recyclables, upcycled garments, and other found resources.
Competing clubs and organizations included ECAD, Campus Activities Board, Student Government Association, EDGE, Rotaract Service Club, Her Campus, The MakerClub, Endicott Environmental Society, and Women in Engineering.
Her Campus members Alexa Flodman ’25 (above), wearing a design by Carly Steinbrick ’25, won the friendly competition that was judged by a panel that included President Steven R. DiSalvo, Ph.D.
