Trash Fashion Show in Seattle

What is the Trash Fashion Show?
Sourced from a dumpster near you, local fashion designers craft panache from trash. At The RE Store's 9th Annual Trash Fashion Show, models flaunt designer detritus on the catwalk as the MC announces the surprising source and vision behind each fashion.

The selected fashions and accessories stretch the imagination regarding what is wearable - materials might include construction fencing, food packaging, inner tubes, soda pop top chainmail, or plastic grocery bags woven, crocheted, pleated or sewn. If it can be thrown away, its fair game for the trash fashionistas.
