Junk to Funk Fashion Show {Set Design/Build}

The 2009 Junk to Funk Fashion Show was held at Crystal Ballroom and hosted by Portland's mayor Sam Adams. In keeping with ideals of the show, the set design was made to be reused and recycled with minimal waste. Salvaged Styrofoam blocks were pulled from waste sites and properly recycled after the show. The backer boards were discarded remnants from a local engineering company. The catwalk was designed to have minimal cuts so the plywood could be resold. The 100 shipping pallets supporting the catwalk were given back to a paper company to be used again.
