Montana State University students will model clothing made of condoms. The American flag was featured on the runway in 2012 and 2013. There will be judges…
“In collaboration with the MSU Women’s Center, the Voice Center, AID Outreach and Bridger Care, MSU Health Promotion is hosting the fifth annual Latex and Lace Condom Fashion Show to kick-start the Sexual Health Awareness month this February,” the email reads.
This will be the fifth year the school holds the condom fashion show event…
At the end of the event — set to be DJ-ed by Missy O’Malley — five judges will select six condom-clad competitors as winners in six separate categories including: Most Safe and Sexy, Most Wearable, Most Colorful, Most Creative, Best Strut and Swagger and the Academy Award (an award based on models’ hair and make up).

The following message is displayed in the video below, taken at the 2012 event.
“Each Condom represents one of the 955 people who have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in Montana since 1985.
The original article doesn’t tell us whether the students design the clothing. MSU does offer an Apparel and Textile design undergraduate degree, but the focus is on “health” and learning everything one needs to know about safe sex. While I browsed around looking at photos of past MSU condom fashion shows, I learned that condoms in the 16th century were made of linen.
