On April 22, as an Earth Day celebration, the Center for Sustainable Living and Discardia came together to present The 2012 Trashion Refashion Show at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. The show was split into two sections, Refashion Designs (“modifying existing clothing into something more fashionable”) and Trashion Designs (“creatively turning discarded items into fashion”). Designs ranged from outrageous to classy, using everything from old jeans to cat food lids.

Even our very own Bloom contributor Lee Ann Sandweiss and design director Kaye Lee Johnston were involved! Sandweiss entered a piece created from Bloom bumper stickers and tote bags for Johnston to model!
