 THE 2021 TRASHION SHOW

The 12th annual Trashion Refashion Show is coming!  The Trashion 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 other than fabric. Past years’ shows included outfits constructed from yoga balls, cat food can lids, video tape, venetian blinds, and shrink wrap. Refashion designs give new life to unworn or discarded garments including commemorative t-shirts, graduation gowns and neckties.

This year we are grateful for the generous support of the Bloomington Arts Commission.  Come out for a serious night of fun and fabulous fashion, performances by Janiece and Celina Jaffe.

This all-ages event is open to the public.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or on Eventbrite.

ABOUT US

The Trashion Refashion Show is produced by Discardia, a project of the Center for Sustainable Living. Designers make fashion out of materials destined for the landfill. Our runway event has inspired designers, students, community members, and even children to find new ways to reuse discarded materials in a creative way. It's an event for the whole family you don't want to miss.

Open to all skill levels, anyone can submit their design and any model can walk our runway regardless of body type or experience. We work with a variety of people, ranging in age from elementary school to senior citizens. With such a wide demographic of designers, our entries have become more challenging and inspiring each year.

Even the giant scale stage sets are made from discarded or unwanted materials every year!
