Every April, Trashion Fashion celebrates the intersection of fashion, art, and environmental sustainability. 

The main event is a runway show that features unique garments, made by community members from recycled or found and unlikely materials. Trashion also includes a gallery show of Barbies, saved from our local landfill and dressed in unique upcycled fashion, a free community Trash Bash party, and a Dogs on the Catwalk show for four-legged companions.

Outrageous outfits made from recycled materials walk the runway in this fashion show where art, design, and ecology come together.
