JACKSON, Tenn.- The phrase, one person's trash is another person's treasure could not have bee more true, Tuesday night.

The University School of Jackson hosted its annual fashion show, which featured designs created from recycled items.

WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News got a look backstage before the models took the stage. Some of the designs included a skirt from baseball skins, and an outfit made from a map.

Students said it is one of their favorite projects in art class.

"It's a challenge of taking something that people normally don't look at as something beautiful and making it something that people can wear and possibly even turn into something they wear everyday, "
said Callie Cantrell, a USJ Sophomore and designer.

Tuesday night's show was not all about fashion. There was also a talent show.
