BLOOMINGTON – The 12th annual Trashion Refashion Show is coming!
The Trashion Refashion Show seeks to promote sustainability by presenting a thought-provoking show that challenges beliefs and behaviors about the role clothing plays in our lives. Local designers from a broad range of ages and backgrounds will show over 40 designs on the runway. Trashion is a celebration of creativity, community, and sustainable living.
To be included in the show, designs need to consist of at least 90% refashioned or discarded materials. Trashion designs are produced using waste materials not intended to be worn as clothing. Past shows included outfits constructed from yoga balls, cat food can lids, videotape, Venetian blinds, and shrink wrap. Refashion designs give new life to unworn or discarded garments including commemorative t-shirts, graduation gowns, and neckties.
Come out for a serious night of fun and fabulous fashion including performances by Janiece and Celina Jaffe.
This year officials are grateful for the generous support of the Bloomington Arts Commission.
This all-ages event is open to the public. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or on Eventbrite.
The Trashion Refashion Show is produced by Discardia, a project of the Center for Sustainable Living.
