Trashion Show adds Upcycle Party to the Mix

Trashionistas at the CARTM Trashion Show

Trashionistas were in fine form at the first Trash Show/Upcycle Party on October 13, 2012 at the NCRD Auditorium and Gymnasium in Nehalem.  The two-part event featured the much-anticipated stand-alone Trashion Show in the auditorium complete with catwalk, soundtrack, stage lighting and local fashionista, Aina Tonjes, as guest commentator.

The 26 trashion models put on the show of the year with their creations to the delight of the 180+ in attendance.    A standing ovation was the perfect segue to the Upcycle Party awaiting attendees and models upstairs in the gym.

Transformed into an eclectic mix of tropical, cityscape, trashion museum draped by multiple parachutes, the gym was the location for the first ever Upcycle Party—a celebratory event to be remembered.  D.J. Loud Glass (aka Jonathan Feder) spun tunes to get everyone dancing while the fashion photo booth, personed by Gene Dieken rivaled anything Hollywood could offer.   Past trashion outfits were displayed on mannequins for close-up viewings.  The lucky winners of CARTM’s Re-think Raffle were selected at the event.

Most often heard comment at the event, “We can’t wait until next year’s Trashion Show & Upcycle Party!”
