While Ruby Re-Usable remains the diva of the Olympia Dumpster Divers, there are some truly talented trashettes showing off their stuff, and we finally got some pics to show you what Olympia High School students Lily Smith and Teasha Feldman have on display at the Capitol Theater in the space where Ruby had her art installation (I love the fact that they reused my wire to hang their plastic bag clothes!). Read what Molly Gilmore wrote about it HERE, view the YouTube HERE and see more pics HERE
Way back in 1999, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection challenged design students to create fashions from recycled materials; video HERE
In New Orleans, Miss Malaprop posted about Worn Again Fashion Show 2008, which included a junior trash fashion show as well as everything from totally wearable stuff to outrageous costumes to avant garde fashion
Be amazed at how fashion designers have found ways to use trash to create haute couture, otherwise known as Haute Trash with Rayona Visqueen and her crew, who have been doing trashion fashion since 1986
Everyday wearables from recycled materials can be found on the Etsy Trashion Blog and also at Great Green Goods. Junk jewelry that has recently become part of our collection includes an aluminum can hand pendant and a whistle made with bottle caps, as well as this fun necklace created by art cartist Kelly Lyles. Make Art Not Waste!
