The student designers for this year’s REVO fashion show each created a collection of six to 12 pieces ranging from outfits made of clear vinyl and worn over other clothes, stylish, intricate dresses made surprisingly of burlap, plastic bags and other recyclable materials, brightly-colored ballerina skirts and bright tights adorned in feather motifs and delicate butterfly wings, classic, sleek dresses and gowns, a men’s line of super hero attire and other creative looks. The lines included student Meagan Miller’s circus-themed outfits, a staged event featuring Miller in red-decorated top hat as the ringmaster and a parade of face-painted models in a cornucopia of shimmering and colorful dresses and outfits depicting the stylish, dramatic and cultural variety of a circus.
REVO, based in Hilo, Hawaii, is a movement that helps individuals find ways of raising money for their charitable causes. Its motto is “start a revolution, start with love.” REVO has branches around the United States and in Guam and Canada. La Sierra sister institutions Pacific Union College and Andrews University both have REVO chapters.
