I appreciate unusual clothing (that means I like to wear weird stuff), so I was enthralled at last Friday’s California College of Arts senior fashion show, where the winner of the Levi’s Award, Caroline Chun, made garments with unexpected panels, and buttons unmatched to buttonholes, creating fabric drapes and bunches of cloth. This isn’t for fans of L.L. Bean couture; it’s a dare.

Student fashion shows always strike an emotional chord with the crowd. Perhaps, it’s the optimistic spirit of new beginnings and the students’ unmasked enthusiasm, perhaps yet to be replaced with cynicism. Or the young supporters in the audience, dressed in the latest trends and cheering on their friends. The California College of Arts Annual Fashion Show on Friday, May 13 was along these lines, with much anticipation and energy in the air.

But sustainable style is nothing new for the Fashion Design program at California College of the Arts (CCA). For nearly two decades, the program has championed an appreciation for handcrafted goods and eco-friendly brands that are carefully created to ease your conscience. Chaired by designer Amy Williams, CCA’s Fashion Design program recently partnered with Cotton Incorporated of North Carolina for on-site instruction in the responsible production of textiles.
