Stephens Students Shape Recyclables For A Chesty Cause
COLUMBIA- For four years now, senior design students at Stephens College have taken what any normal person would call junk, and turned it into a work of art.
Scraps from here and there have been used by students to create pink dresses and other items to be put in windows downtown.
The displays are in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Stephens design and visual merchandising classes team up each year to make the exhibits happen.
Businesses hosting the displays include Calhoun's, Mearle Norman, Makes Scents, Mustard Seed, Holder, Bogden, and Slusher Law Firm, and Diggit Graphics.
Diggit owner Kyle Sly says his display has been a big hit.
"Everybody loves it. We get a lot of people stopping by saying they love our windows and they appreciate us participating."
Sly says reactions from the community are the most rewarding part.
