Their exhibit is now open!

Slim’s Fashion and Arts School students are proving that there is beauty in every little thing, even those one might consider to have no value. Case in point is their new exhibit. Called Alchemy, the students take the spirit of this ancient practice and applies it in making clothes. Selected students "were encouraged to create clothing that would first be visually appealing, before it became apparent that the garment was made with repurposed materials." Thus, all the pieces in the exhibit are upcycled creations, an important process in today's fashion landscape. Moreover, the "Slim’s students have approached it in a manner that reflects their extensive skills: the clothes are polished and refined."

Slim's Alchemy: The Best of Student Work 2019 will be on exhibit at Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall from September 26 to October 4, and is open to the public.
