Fashion Frenzy, Pop Culture

McDonald’s McDCouture Fashion Line-Up

We kinda wish this was satirical, but it’s not. Who needs the scrawny-legged Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, when you can check out the Miami International University of Art and Design’s McDCouture line? I was expecting the McDonald’s fashion show to be highly political. I envisioned obese children shuffling in overstretched clothing. Some diabetics with amputated feet hobbling down the runway. Low-income parents carrying their malnourished children down the catwalk on their hip—in one hand a tattered diaper bag, in the other, a fistful of crinkled McDonald’s paper bags. Grease saturating the bottoms of the brown paper. The actual fashion show was much less political, and much more whimsical. Miami students recently used McDonald’s fast food products to design and produce a fun fashion collection. According to the Miami New Times, students solely utilized McDonald’s materials to construct the collection. Students used more than 4,600 sandwich wrappers, 1,770 French fry boxes, 600 to-go bags, 500 sandwich boxes, 200 soft drink cups, 500 ketchup holders, and 100 McFlurry cups.
