What is a Trashion Show?

A Trashion Show is a fashion show that celebrates environmentalism and innovation through wearable art created from used, thrown-out, found and/or repurposed elements. It calls attention to fast fashion pollution and landfills. It sparks creativity and conversation. A Trashion Show raises awareness about recycling and waste reduction while inspiring ingenuity and fun.

For Earth Day 2022 we hosted a Virtual Trashion Show on Friday, April 22, 2022 showcasing the trashion outfits students submitted. This year's theme: Reduce, Reuse, Refashion!

2022 Trashion Show Judges

Entries will be evaluated on creativity, design, originality, craftsmanship and on their environmental message that connects the fashion, material used, and the material’s effect on the environment.
