Lake-Lehman sophomores Sarah Litchman and Anna DeFranco competed in a recycled fashion design competition called Project Innovate, the objective of which was to create high fashion using re-purposed materials

The competition was held at the Pennsylvania Art Education Association's annual conference on Oct. 6 in Harrisburg.

Judges included former Project Runway contestant Pamela Ptak, whom Litchman and DeFranco had the opportunity to meet and ask questions of regarding what it takes to pursue a career in fashion.

The Lake-Lehman girls designed a dress using a black tablecloth and old CDs. Accessories included wine cork shoes and a handbag made of wallpaper, soda tabs and duct tape were designed by elementary students at Lehman-Jackson.

The girls recruited Lindsey Robin, an art student from Kutztown University, to be their model.

The project was completed under the supervision of art teachers Jenna Casaldi and Selena Mazzella.
