Trashion Fashion Show

The modelsThe Trashion Fashion show at SJSU was phenomenal. Trash bags, newspaper and electrical wire were just some of the materials that SJSU designers used.

First place winner Ashley Bachman, a sophomore industrial design major, was inspired to participate in the 2013 Trashion Fashion show because she saw it as a challenge to combine the idea of recycled goods with fashion. She said the piece was inspired by electronics because they are one of the largest contributors to land fills and people do not know how to recycle them properly. “There’s a lot of precious metals you can get from electrical wire if you properly recycle them and if you don’t there are a lot of hazardous chemicals that will leach into our water streams.” Bachman said.

This is Associated Students’ fourth year hosting the Trashion Fashion Show, with the goal of creating awareness of post-consumer waste and clothing, according to Victor Hernandez, a sophomore history major. “The purpose of Trashion Fashion is to endorse being green on campus, to help designers and models. The most difficult part is the week or day before the event because everything is not certain. The most exciting part is the show itself,” Hernandez said.

The event took place on April 23, 2013 in front of the Campus Village quad. Designers competed for the most eco-friendly designs during the first part of the show. During the second part, Models strutted down the runway in clothes from Crossroads Trading Co., a local second-hand fashion shop.

Out of the blue, a dress made entirely out of newspaper, I used staples, scotch tape and glue to hold the dress together. To hold the dress closed I used 4 inches of Velcro. Modeled by Cosmetologist, AnaBrenda Carrillo.

“I was so excited to be in the show that when it was my turn on the catwalk I got a little nervous, but the excitement took over me and I loved every second of it,” Andrea Carriedo, a model and freshman liberal studies major said. Carriedo modeled a dress made entirely of Spartan Daily newspapers. The dress won second place and was designed by me, Daisy Carriedo-Sandoval, graduate student.

For the SJSU designers, models and fashion-minded students, this was an opportunity to show off their skills, help build their resumes and help others be more aware of recycling.

The great Jose Iniguez

I had the pleasure of interviewing a boxing star on the rise, from Stockton California the great Jose Iniguez. We discuss his glorious boxing career from the beginning to the present, and the many great opportunities the future has in store for him.


How did you first get your start in boxing?
My boxing career started in the middle of my high school senior year. After playing basketball for many years I didn’t make the team, my  freshmen, sophomore or junior year. I felt team sports weren’t for me. It was the middle of my senior year and I was bored. During my senior year I chose to skip try outs for the basketball team and decided to take on boxing. My passion for boxing grew when I watched the first season of The Contender. After stepping foot in the ring for the first time, I knew it was what I wanted to do.

Growing up, who are some of the fighters that you admired most?
Growing up I always admired the great that have become champions. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get there.

Who are you currently being trained by?
I’m currently being trained by coach Steve Salas and trainer Julio. They are great and have been training with me, since day one.

What does a typical day of training look like for you?
A typical day training involves me getting up at 4:30am to get my 5-7 mile run. Followed by my boxing regimen from 4:00pm-7:00pm and finished by strength and conditioning at 8:00pm at a local gym.

How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as a mix of both old school and new school. I feel my style brings the best of both worlds.

I personally have seen you spar in the past, and I must admit, I was impressed with your hand speed. Is this the edge that you feel you have over your fellow fighters that will see you through to the top of the division?
Although my speed is a big factor, I feel I’m strong in all aspects. Currently I am working on sharpening all my skills, to keep me  ahead of my competition.

When can we expect to see you back in the ring, and whom will it be against?
You can expect me back in the ring in a couple of months, I’m currently recovering from a hernia surgery I had a month ago. My next fight will be with an upcoming prospect, where I plan to make a statement.

 If you could face any heavyweight from the past, who would it be and why?
If I could face any heavy weight it would have to be Mike Tyson, he was the best, you have to beat the best to be the best.

It’s always fun to ask this question; if not a boxer, what line of work do you think you would be in?
If not boxing, I would be working, dealing and conversing with people. I love to interact and hear different peoples stories.

Thank you for your time Jose. Any final message to the fans?
Thank you Daisy for having me. A final message to the fans, Expect great things from me inside and outside the ring.
