BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Models will strut down the runway in clothes made from recycled goods, as part of a fashion show during Indiana University’s annual ArtsWeek.
 

“Trashion/ReFashion” will include new looks crafted from used or recycled resources. The “Trashion” part of the show will feature dresses made from newspapers, video tape, microfilm and other discarded materials, while the “ReFashion” portion will include looks assembled from used articles of clothing.
 

The show is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday at the Bloomington Convention Center. Tickets for adults are $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
 

Proceeds will go to support The Center for Sustainable Living.
