The Trashy Flashy Fashion Show features high fashion designs made entirely of 75% recycled

materials. This fashion show, celebrated in honor of America Recycles Day, serves as an educational

opportunity to share ways to decrease our carbon footprint by showcasing examples of

environmentally sustainable fashions.



The Trashy Flashy Fashion Show will focus on the importance of waste reduction through reduce,

reuse and recycle. These waste reduction concepts will be incorporated into the designs through the

use of upcycling and repurposing. To upcycle means to take an item and turn it into an item of

higher value, such as taking some duct-tape and turning it into a dress or a bracelet. These high

fashion pieces will not only intertwine fashion and art with sustainability, but they will show how

beautiful the end result can be.



Attendees will be intrigued by the creativity, uniqueness and abnormality that go into these

wearable works of art derived from recycled materials.






Who can apply to be a designer?


Local students in an art or design program, designers, artists, and the general public who are creative and would like

to participate are welcome.


What is the Trashy Flashy Fashion Show?


A recycled fashion show that stresses the importance of recycling and brings to life elaborate designs made from

recycled materials and trash. Hair and make-up will be provided by Paul Mitchell.
