Students at Pioneer Valley High School in Santa Maria expressed their creativity at a handmade fashion Thursday.

Advanced apparel students were given the task of making garments out of newspaper, glue, tape, staples and yarn.

Some of the dresses took several days to make.

“All of them are just so energetic and excited about what we're doing and they put in so much effort to be here they've been here lunches after school morning it's been amazing,” family consumer science teacher at Pioneer Valley High School Melissa Diaz said.

The gowns were shown off during the fashion show at the school’s performing arts center. They had different designs from fringe frocks to high-low ruffled dresses.

Some participants said it was a lot of fun to come together and make the garments as a team.

“It's very beautiful, my teammates did a very good job on it I love it I would like wear this to homecoming if I can,” sophomore at Pioneer Valley High School Asia Maes said.

Designing the dresses is just one of the assignments the advanced apparel students must complete throughout the year.
