On Sunday, April 2, more than 110 talented student designers participated in the 6th annual Curbside Couture at the Clinton Presidential Center. Curbside Couture is Arkansas’s largest “green” fashion show. More than 350 people attended the event, held in the Center’s Great Hall, and enjoyed the original designs created with recycled material.
Information about purchasing professional photos from Curbside Couture will be available later this week.
The show is the product of months of hard work by both student designers and mentors. Winning designs were chosen by a panel of jurors, and winning designers were awarded a cash prize.
