Happy Earth Day!

The Seattle RE Store’s two sold-out Trash Fashion Shows were truly trashtastic: twenty nine designers/design teams with twenty one models presented over thirty four ensembles made from an amazing assortment of, well, trash! The official theme this year was plastic pollution, and so many of the designers found creative ways to use plastic shopping bags, the plastic bags from boxed wine, plastic lids of all sizes, shapes and colors, plastic toys, plastic packaging, and even plastic medical waste.
