Trashion Show

Sixth annual upcycle event to celebrate CARTM’s 20th anniversary in style

What kind of clothes can be made out of recycled “20”? Twenty grocery bags? Or 20 light bulbs? Or maybe 20 laundry detergent boxes? Plan to attend the 6th annual Trashion Show/Upcycle Party (TSUP) and find out how this year’s trashionistas translate “20” into wearable garments made out of recycled materials.

This unique and inspiring fundraiser pays homage to CARTM’s 20th Anniversary on Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. at the NCRD Performing Arts Center, 36155 9th Street in Nehalem. Tickets are on sale now at CARTM. The $30 ticket includes the runway show, admission to the Upcycle Party, delicious food catered by the Bleu-eyed Baker, beverages (adult and alcohol-free) and dancing to music by DJ AfTim Rhythm. TSUP regularly sells out so don’t wait to purchase tickets. If available, tickets at the door will be $35.

For those who have not attended before, this colorful and creative event is a two-part experience opening with a classic fashion (trashion!) runway show in the historic auditorium and culminates in an after-party which celebrates the joy of re-use and offers an opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with the models and their creations.
