McDCouture Fashion Show in Miami Leaves Crowd Hungry for More

A South Florida McDonald’s franchisee recently challenged fashion students from Miami International University of Art and Design  to create an original fashion collection designed entirely out of McDonald’s signature food packaging. From fry box frocks to coffee cup couture and ready-to-wear wrappers, the McDCouture was served up for the start of Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach.
The aspiring designers utilized more than 4,600 McDonald’s sandwich wrappers, 1,770 fry boxes, 1,100 straws, 600 to-go bags, 500 sandwich boxes, 200 soft drink cups, 500 ketchup holders, and 100 McFlurry cups to create their one-of-a-kind-designs, and after weeks of preparation, their McDCouture was runway ready.
On trend, the 20 look collection left the crowd hungry for more than a Big Mac and fries. The crowd full of fashionistas were lovin’ the designs which ranged from mini and mid-length skirts to ponchos and fringe. There were evening gowns and even something for a McDonald’s bride-to-be.
Prior to the start of the McDCouture Fashion Show, Fashion Group International of South Florida presented a Community Service Award to Cabrera/Bentancourt organization, owners of 20 McDonald’s in South Florida. They share in McDonald’s global commitment to be a good neighbor and a valued partner to the community by supporting charitable organizations, schools, youth programs and most recently fashion education. Proud to accept the award, the Cabrera and Bentancourt families believe that giving back is an essential part of the way they operate every day.
Guests were encouraged to share photos on social media by using #McDCouture.
After the fashion show the pieces will be displayed at the Miami International University of Art and Design.
