One of NC State’s most popular traditions was held last night at Reynolds Coliseum: Art to Wear. Sponsored by the colleges of Design and Textiles, the fashion show featured the original designs of 12 students. Kirk Smith, a senior in food science, won Art to Wear’s judge’s choices award. The News & Observer has this description of his collection:
This year, Art to Wear had a new name: Food to Wear.
The popular N.C. State University fashion show, which annually blends the best of fashion and art coming out of State’s College of Design and College of Textiles, had a newcomer taking home the judges’ top prize Wednesday night.
Kirk Smith, a food science senior from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, presented an entire collection made from food packaging. Smith may be the only student without ties to the College of Design or the College of Textiles ever to be in the show.
