Hannah Warne followed one pair of designers as they created a dress and took it to the April 11 show.

A Boston University group gave student clothing designers an unusual task for a fashion show this week. Each design team had to create clothing using wrapped and unwrapped condoms.

Thursday’s event, called Condom Couture, was hosted by BU’s chapter of FACE AIDS, a national organization trying to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. BU’s chapter is one of more than 200 high school and college chapters around the country.

“We wanted to bring something novel to the university [with Condom Couture],” said Jeremy Meltzer, Boston University student and one of the founders of the BU FACE AIDS chapter. The event’s goal was to raise awareness on sexual health issues, he added.

This article and video was produced for the Boston Globe through a partnership with the Boston University News Service.
