Using old clothes, newspapers and other recycled material, five Palestinian designers help put on a fashion show in Ramallah Nov. 5. Their 30 outfits on display were created as part of a recycling project sponsored by the A.M. Qattan Foundation (AMQF).

Rami Kashou, a New York-based Palestinian fashion designer who oversaw the creation of the costumes and mentored the Palestinian designers, told Al-Monitor that the London-registered AMQF project included a workshop, a fashion show and a design contest. The aim was to create public awareness of the importance of recycling as well as to help promote design in Ramallah.
