Love and Compassion: Trashion Fashion 2016

Siena Fest is packed with tons of campus events, socialization, and is a time to neglect that research paper you should’ve started months ago. To kick-start Siena Fest’s fun-filled weekend was the 8th Annual Trashion Fashion show, sponsored by Siena College’s Stage III and Creative Arts Department.

This year’s theme was “Love and Compassion” and was directed by our very own Her Campus writer Kristen Bossio. Former Her Campus Siena profiles Kenney Alexandre ‘17 and Shane Cronin ‘16 hosted the show, providing descriptions of each outfit, comedic banter and even a dance-off.

17 models hit the stage sporting outfits made out of anything from their favorite snacks’ wrappers to the leftover posters from some of Stage 3’s productions.

The show ended with the two daughters of Obadiah Savage (Technical Director) and Dr. Christi Spain-Savage strutting their stuff down the runway to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”  Their dresses were made out of wrapping paper, which they claimed took “a hundred years to make.”

During the final judging, Kenney and Shane invited members of the audience to take on the runway with their best model walks, poses and sick dance moves.  Concluding the strut-off was a dance battle between the two MCs - one that the audience simply couldn’t resist!

First Place: Kristen Bossio (Designer and Model; Her Campus Siena writer)
