Maureen Dorsett, show coordinator for OSU's 24th Recycled Fashion Show, talks with our reporters before the show kicks off Thursday night.

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Some Oregon State students are turning reusable materials into interesting clothes for the 24th annual Recycled Fashion Show. From dresses made from dryer lint to skirts made from old cornhusks, the fashion students made sustainable clothing for the runway.

Show coordinator Maureen Dorsett said they have a total of 35 gowns, dresses and skirts in the Thursday night show. 

“A lot of designers are not sustainable with the way they're designing things, and we are taking the challenge to make designers think outside of the box,” said Dorsett.

The show starts at 7 p.m. in the memorial union; tickets are $7 at the door.
