TRASHion Fashion is an annual Denton program program that sees designers of all ages competing against one another to create wearable works of art made from recycled materials. This year marks the 6th anniversary of the award-winning program and is sure to be a hit. Read on for more information about how you can be a part of this year's TRASHion Fashion program.
The City of Denton's Solid Waste and Recycling Department, SCRAP Denton, Davanti Salon, Denton ISD, Keep Denton Beautiful and a few other awesome local organizations use the Trashion Fashion initiative to invite designers of all ages to create clothing (or what they call "wearable art") from materials that would otherwise end up recycled or in a landfill. At the same time, the program also promotes recycling and creative reuse. College fashion design students enter, as well as primary/secondary school students, and adults. Every year, they see designs that really earn that "wearable art" title.
There are multiple categories for the various age groups and different prizes for each of the winners. Both individuals and groups can enter designs into the competition. Registration for this year's program is open until March 1st. For more info (or to register), check out SCRAP's website.
Participants will see their designs on the runway at the annual Redbud Festival put on by Keep Denton Beautiful in April.
Have an idea, but you're not quite sure how to make it happen? Fret not. SCRAP can help. Between now and April 3rd, they are hosting various workshops on different topics relating to creating TRASHion entries. Check them all out here. All workshops take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and are held at SCRAP, 420 S. Bell Ave. Additionally, there will be a free optional photoshoot (complete with hair/make up from Davanti) the weekend before the Redbud Festival for participants.
