The 2012 CARTM Trashion Show is on for October 13!
The 2012 CARTM Trashion Show will be staged as a runway fashion show in the NCRD Auditorium with a great party following in the gym upstairs. This will be your opportunity to put your design talents to work and to produce the most creative trash fashions ever seen in our community!
As a fundraiser for CARTM, the show will be a stand-alone event and a bit longer than in past years. In addition to our many well known models, we are encouraging people, who perhaps have thought about it but have not been involved in the past, to do so this year. It’ll be great fun for all!
Even if you are not interested in being a model, we are looking for people who might want to help someone else create an outfit – designing, sewing etc. Also, we will need a few volunteers to help during the show and party afterwards. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are interested.
NEW THIS YEAR! We would like to display past Trashion Show outfits upstairs in the gym for the after-show party. Many people have asked to see the outfits up close; this will be their opportunity and your chance to show off your past creations. So, dig through your closets for outfits from years past. And yes, we will have mannequins to display each creation.
IDEAS: Here are some examples of possible costume materials: old drop cloths, venetian blinds, chicken wire, carpet padding, all sorts of plastic stuff, egg cartons, old umbrellas, rolls of wallpaper borders, Styrofoam peanuts, electrical wiring, fiberglass screening and assorted trash from your office or business.
NOTE: This is a new direction for CARTM. Since the Trashion Show will be more adult-oriented than in the past, it will not be an appropriate occasion for younger children. Perhaps in the future there may be a more child friendly event.
So reserve your spot now to be part of the show! Please contact Mary Moran at email@example.com to schedule your spot on the catwalk, to display an outfit from the past or to volunteer your time and experience.
Almost everything created in this world can become something new many times before it is discarded forever.
CARTM Recycling promotes sustainable living and artistic expression through the creative re-use of materials. We collect our community’s ‘discards’ and sort it into reusable items, recyclable materials and finally, trash. We make the good stuff available to become new again — as art, as building materials or furniture and as raw materials for new packaging.
