Sustainable Fashion Show Returns, Wows at Sage Hill

By Daniel Langhorne
The Reimagined Club hosted its second annual Sustainable Fashion Show on January 19, showcasing outfits upcycled from gently used clothing to educate the community about the human and environmental costs of the fashion industry.

Co-presidents Anna Yang ’25 and Sofia Jellen ’24 welcomed families, faculty, staff, and fellow students to the standing-room only show entitled “Déjà vu” in the Kazu Fukuda Black Box Theater. The event was broken up into colorful themes from several decades, including flowers emblazoned on 1960s miniskirts and iconic street art spray painted onto a top representing the 1980s. 

“It feels amazing and we’re just happy to see so many people loving fashion, Reimagined and fashion sustainability,” Anna said after wrapping the show. “We’re grateful to have so many people helping out with the fashion whether it was modeling, designing the pieces or just being in the audience. Thank you to the community for always supporting us.”

Anna co-founded the club in 2022 to advocate against the “fast fashion” industry. She and her fellow club members hope to educate others on the poor conditions plaguing workers at overseas factories and a more sustainable future for the environment. 

Sustainable fashion advocate and influencer Lexy Silverstein was invited as a guest speaker to end the show by sharing about her grassroots effort to educate the public about fast fashion’s negative environmental impacts.

Art Director Renna Hamoui '25 played a key role in helping design many of the pieces. She also modeled in the show.

The Sage Hill Photography Club supported Reimagined by helping photograph models, and Fashion Island sponsored the event.

Reimagined fundraises by selling the upcycled fashion pieces at a sustainable marketplace, Melrose Trading Post. The Club plans to donate all proceeds to the nonprofit organization REMAKE, Sofia said.
