Designers use recycled materials 2 come up with fashion designs. I've copied the content below. Sounds like a fun exhibit, pretty cool if you ask me. :)
New exhibit from
The Urban Green Initiative
Gallery 151 (350 Bowery, NYC 10012) invites you to the opening of "TRASHION" the newest exhibit from the Urban Green Initiative - an ongoing series of art exhibitions, music concerts & dance performances that will encourage an artistic approach to ongoing conversations about environmental awareness.
The opening night "Trashion Tuesday", will include a performance by Miz Metro featuring Crosby and saxophonist Alex Violette and a live "TRASH FASHION FACE OFF" where two designers given the same recycled materials will battle to be the "Trashion Queen". Live performances on the chi-chair, and games and toys made of trash to play with. Also featuring an interactive tape wall where gallery goers can become a part of the exhibit with their own tape creations, creating a community mural that will stay up and can be added to through out the duration of the show.
