Myself along with lots of amazing trashion designers came together for one night to celebrate art as a way to educate about environmental issues. Thank you for allowing me to be apart of something so special and for speaking about why EcoFashion is so important. Turning Trash to Treasure is easy. Getting people to understand why we should do isn’t always that easy.
TRASHion Show, held at Wild Honey Studios in downtown Los Angeles, was a fashion show and fundraiser for RuckusRoots’ award-winning program, TRASHformation. The fashion show featured clothing made entirely from recycled items–the runway saw over 50 looks from eight amazing LA designers. Music was provided by Erinn Bone, Ryan Nelli and Michal Menert of Pretty Lights Music. TRASHion Show was sponsored by Elemental LED, Flying Dog Brewery, Mr. V’s Cheesesteak Truck and Kork Kitchen LA.
