Trashion came back! The Bainbridge Island Trashion Show committee created a new and exciting outdoor walking event for 2021. Now more than ever there is a need to focus on sustainable systems and innovation. Thank you for joining us to celebrate inspired ideas and creative visions.
The event took place at Bainbridge Island Hilltop meadow between the east and west Grand Forest. The artists set up their live model exhibits each under their own tent stationed along the walking meadow loop. Visitors had timed ticket entry and followed the path, stopping at each tent to view the models and talk with the artists. If you missed the show, watch the ten-minute video below. Videographer Jonah Kessler-Cohen visited with each designer to showcase their creations.
Thank you to our sponsors, supporters, partners, designers and community for making this event possible.
The Bainbridge Island Trashion Show is a fashion show showcasing chic, theatrical, and wearable garments using recycled materials and repurposed clothes. Its mission is to spread awareness about consumption, recycling, and waste reduction with the ultimate goal of reducing trash headed for the landfill.
