The Chicago Department of Aviation in a partnership with Columbia College of Chicago, invites fashion design students to participate in a design competition. Students are challenged to design a wearable fashion using recycled materials provided by airline partners, to compliment an accessory item provided by O'Hare shops. The fashions go on display at the airport, where passengers are invited to vote for their favorite. Students then make a final presentation to a panel of judges. Votes are combined and tallied, and a winning fashion selected.
