You may expect a runway fashion show in cities like New York or Los Angeles, but on Saturday a special fashion show came to Wausau.

The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum hosted a show featuring recycled fashion. A U.W. Madison design program had 40 graduate and undergraduate students looking at trash in a different way. Many of the designs had an environmental theme.

"I think it spurs people's imaginations and often you can apply the sort of creativity and impiration into you daily life in ways that you wouldn't expect," said the museum's media relations representative, Amy Beck.

The show attracted more people than expected. They had to add a second room with people watching on a screen and even added a second showing. About 160 people came to the first show. Saturday was the only day they were showing the students' work, but Nancy Judd, who worked with these students, has her recycled work also on display.
