Time for TRASHion Fashion!

It’s time to get ready for the 5th Annual TRASHion Fashion show!  Amazing fashions created from discarded materials will be parading the runway at the Denton Redbud Festival, April 23.  The Denton TRASHion Fashion Program is an award winning, comprehensive fashion design competition for all ages. Designers create wearable art made of items destined for the landfill or recycling. Participants become knowledgeable about problems associated with waste generation and then express them through fashion and artistic design.  The library has been a partner in the TRASHion Fashion show since its inception in 2012.  We are excited to continue our participation in 2016.

If you’ve been thinking about a great design, there is still time to register to participate.  Registration is open through February 29, 2016.  Click here to register http://scrapdenton.org/programs/trashion-fashion/

Workshops are scheduled to help designers and models prepare for the show.  All workshops take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and are held at SCRAP, 420 S. Bell Ave.

February 24-Embellishments & Accessories

March 7-Finishing Touches

March 22-Preparing Your Runway Factoid

The library will help conduct this workshop about researching and writing an informational statement for your design.  We’ll guide you through the process of writing an informational piece to complement their designs.  Participants will conduct research to gather information relevant to the materials they use, recycling, and the environment.  That research is then used to create a two or three sentence statement which will be read as models walk the runway.

April 4-Rehearsal & Model Workshop (This workshop is mandatory)

We look forward to seeing all the unique creations at the TRASHion Fashion show.
