Congratulations to 4th year B.Arch student Zain Islam-Hashmi, one of four winners recognized at the Ecolution Fashion Show this past month. The event challenges Pittsburgh-based designers to incorporate recycled and reused materials in the creation of original pieces designed for Pittsburgh Earth Day. Zain’s design “Earth-Construction-Deconstruction” made use of dirt, concrete, sand, and paper in its construction.

“This year’s theme, ‘Forces of Nature, That Which We Cannot Control Will Move Us,’ was an attempt to show the forces of humankind that have an emotional connection to the earth…” said event curator and producer Richard Parsakian.
