Burbank Eco Council Invites all Burbank Students TK-12 to Submit to April Trashion Show
Calling all TK-12 students to submit fabulous upcycled outfits to the Burbank Eco-Council’s first annual Trashion Show! Trashion = Trash + Fashion, and this is a chance to reimagine what you might have thrown into the garbage into a force for creativity!
Burbank Unified students, those at private schools, and homeschoolers are all eligible to enter and win cash prizes, as well as put their creative outfits on display. Solo projects and teams are welcomed. Dig into your garbage, grab a friend and your hot glue gun, and have fun with the theme Reduce / Reuse / Refashion!
What is a Trashion Show?
A Trashion Show is a fashion show that celebrates environmentalism and innovation through wearable art created from used, thrown-out, found and/or repurposed elements. It calls attention to fast fashion pollution and landfills. It sparks creativity and conversation. A Trashion Show raises awareness about recycling and waste reduction while inspiring ingenuity and fun.
How to Participate
To participate, design and create an original outfit – individually or as a team – from trash, reclaimed, or recycled material that can safely be worn on the body. Then take a few photos of the outfit and a quick video and enter our juried contest. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges (including Project Runway finalist Coral Castillo).
The submission deadline is Monday, April 11, 2022.
Winners will be announced at our Earth Day Virtual Trashion Showcase on Earth Day, Friday, April 22nd. All participants can walk the red carpet the following Friday at our live Trashion Show at the Pop-up Art Show At Magnolia Park Night Out on April 29th, a community party with photographers, a DJ, and live bands.
Specific guidelines and submission information can be found here: https://www.burbankecocouncil.org/trashion-show-2022
