Alumna’s Incredible Design Featured in Fundraising Gala
A garment designed and created by theatre alumna Kristine Doiel, MFA class 2017, was one of the highlights of this year’s “Trashique,” a Fresno Art Museum fundraiser that showcases some over-the-top fashions made out of recycled materials. The event was held Feb. 24 in an aircraft hanger at the Fresno Yosemite International Airport.
Doiel’s tribute to mid-century designers Charles and Ray Eames. This power couple is best known for their contributions to mid-century American architecture, furniture design, industrial design and manufacturing. Her creation, modeled with a strutting certainty by Katerina Guerrero, offered a whimsical tribute to the Eames’ artistic vision.
Trashique features clothes made out of trash and recycled materials. Dozens of local artists designed wild outfits for the models who walked the runway.
