Trash fashion show set for September

-A A +A

Trash fashion, or recycled fashion, is clothing made from materials that would have otherwise ended up in the trash or recycling.
It is the act of utilizing products society would commonly label as waste to create wearable art that inspires individuals to think more about the items they throw away. It is eye-catching fashion that makes a social and environmental statement.
Register for the Second Annual Los Alamos Trash Fashion Contest set for noon Sept. 14 as part of the Next Big Idea Festival.
The second annual Los Alamos Trash Fashion Contest is free and open to all ages. All garments entered into the contest must be made of at least 75 percent recycled or reused materials.
Registration forms and more information are available at the County Sustainability website www.losalamosnm.us/getgreen and the Next Big Idea website, www.nextbigideala.com.
“The Trash Fashion contest last year was one of the highlights of the Next Big Idea Festival and we are excited to have it back this year,” said Suzette Fox, MainStreet Executive Director and Community Projects Coordinator.
The fashion show will take place at noon on the lawn adjacent to the roundabout located on Main Street.
