DISCARD DISCO: A TRASHION SHOW
The WasteShed is excited to present its first annual trashion runway show. DiscardDisco: A Trashion Show will feature a fabulous array of hand-crafted trash garments by local designers and artists! "All garments will consist of 100% repurposed materials and highlight the creative possibilities of what we commonly call 'waste' or 'trash'," said Adrian Jacobs, Marketing Assistant for The WasteShed.
A panel of judges will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for cash prizes. In addition to the runway show, there will be an "Accessories Table" that the public will have the opportunity to vote on, a silent auction of Chicago treats and experiences, a photo booth, free crafting activities (all with repurposed materials, of course) and dancing to wrap up the evening.
Everyone is encouraged to attend in costume, and those who do will receive a free drink ticket at the door!
DiscarDisco is a benefit for The WasteShed, a nonprofit creative reuse center in Humboldt Park. The WasteShed's mission is to keep reusable school and art materials out of the landfill, and to provide an affordable resource for Chicago's creative and educational communities.
