Additionally, MIU fashion students have created one-of-a-kind signature crafted resort/swimwear from McDonald’s packaging and paper goods. From Happy Meal haute couture to French fry box cover ups and hamburger wrapper hoodies, this unique McDCouture collection for both men and women will be featured during the school’s annual Swim Fashion Show.

Students from MIU have been hungry for another McDonald’s unconventional fashion challenge since their 2015 McDCouture fashion show whet the appetites of fashionistas around the world. This year, McDonald’s invited students to submit design concepts for men’s and women’s swimwear and is offering a $5000 scholarship for the best signature crafted design.
