On November 8, Latinx food and fashion converged to create a unique 13-look runway show at the Setai Hotel in Miami Beach. The event featured work from Miami International University of Art and Design students, who made garments exclusively using Goya Foods products. This production was part of Funkshion’s The Future, and the Fashion Group International of South Florida’s Annual Awards Ceremony, Added bonus? MIU and Goya donated all remaining leftovers from packaging, and cans, to Sisters of Charity, and Hope for the Homeless.
The following photos are unique looks the fashion students created with Goya products. Not only is this a shoutout to a company we grew up seeing in our kitchens, but it’s proof that great garments can come from up-cycled, recycled—and unexpected—materials.
