The RE Store presents their annual Trash Fashion Show in partnership with Western Washington University.
The event begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 30, in the Viking Union Multipurpose Room. Doors open at 7 p.m.
The runway show features fashions and accessories crafted from the contents of trash cans and dumpsters. The Trash Fashion show will showcase 30 designs - 20 of which are highly sophisticated WWU student designs - that stretch the imagination regarding what is wearable.
A community tradition, the show challenges professional and amateur designers and artists to craft fashion from landfill-bound materials. This year’s event will add a new designer category to the mix – students – broadening the show’s scope and inspiring a wider audience around creative reuse and reducing waste. It will also mark the first year that the show will be held in an all-ages venue.
Tickets for the Trash Fashion Show are $14 general and $11 for students, available through the WWU Box Office, The RE Store, Village Books, the Community Food Co-op.
