Veggies and fashion make an entertaining mix.
This past Tuesday, Oklahoma City Thunder superstar/fashion enthusiast Russell Westbrook and Olympic gold medalist Nastia Liukin were on hand to judge the second annual Project Subway Fashion Show at the Eyebeam Atelier in Chelsea.
Up-and-coming designers and Fashion Institute of Technology students competed for a $1,000 cash prize, along with having their winning design displayed in a SUBWAY restaurant. The budding designers had the creative task of using vegetables found at SUBWAY restaurants(spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, banana peppers, and onions) as inspiration for their one-of-a-kind couture dresses.
“My favorite was the onion, but my second favorite was the banana pepper; we were torn between the two!” Nastia Liukin via Daily News.
In last year’s Project SUBWAY presentation, contestants were challenged to create pieces using sandwich wrappers, napkins, and gift cards. It’s only natural to wonder what Subway has up their sleeve for next year’s contest.
