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!
