Kylie Seaton, a senior at Cabell-Midland High School and a member of the teen board at Charleston Town Center, likes a little more challenge than that.
To that end, she has used pages of a phone book, coffee filters, thrift store shirts, vinyl records, a pile of old roadmaps and a discarded SpongeBob SquarePants T-shirt.
Her efforts have earned her awards three times in the West Virginia Re-Fashion Show, organized by the Recycling Coalition of WV Inc.
On Saturday, Seaton plans to enter again, although as of last week she was still mulling ideas. Her able assistant is her mom, Rachel Walker.
This year, the two are considering using a pile of not-quite-perfect pantyhose Walker scouted out online and got for a song.
Seaton said her favorite part about the fashion show is the time she gets to spend with her mom collaborating on ideas.
"I've always loved to design outfits," Seaton said. Her mom's expertise is in the construction process.
