On October 5, the Arts Council of Placer County held its inaugural “Reinvent the Runway” show featuring more than 30 artistic creations using recycled and repurposed materials. The event was held in partnership with Sierra Makerspaces and Hacker Lab powered by Sierra College, attracting more than 300 people to the venue. Sierra College’s Robotics Club managed the BBQ and helped feed guests, and CCC Maker students who had completed internship experiences also volunteered their time at the event. The specially designed runway was constructed by Sierra Makerspaces Creative Consultant Heather Lincoln and assembled by a team from the Sierra and Hacker Lab community.
Designers represented diverse cultures, including five entries featuring Native American messages and images, and fashion genres including fantasy, exotic, and bohemian. Designers also included students from Folsom Lake College’s Innovation Center, Sierra College Makerspaces, Lincoln High School, and Newcastle Elementary School; faculty from Sierra College and Lincoln High School; and team members from Sierra Makerspaces. https://youtu.be/3g0KiVF3Hns
Fashion entries were displayed on manikins at the Rocklin Mini-Maker Faire the next day, October 6, and will be on display at Hacker Lab powered by Sierra College until mid-October as part of a regional gallery tour by the Arts Council of Placer County.
