Re-think fall fashion...think Trashion! CARTM's beloved Trashion Show & Upcycle Party (TSUP) event is right around the corner, so it is time once again to get out the sewing machines and create some "hot couture." The second annual show, which will take place on Saturday, Oct. 12, 7 p.m. at the NCRD auditorium in Nehalem, is seeking participants who want to sew, strut or be part of the audience for this unique happening.
"You don't necessarily have to be up on the runway to be involved in this year's show," said Trashion Show coordinator Mary Moran. "We have people who would like to wear an outfit and be a part of the show but they don't design or sew—we have willing models—so help us dress them. We're really hoping to get more men involved in this year's show."
This year, there will be two opportunities to work on outfits in supportive, collaborative workshop settings. The best part is these sessions are free and those involved can help answer questions, solve problems and generally help you create something remarkable. Wear your “trashion” on the runway show or to the event.
Those interested in signing up to be a model in CARTM's 2013 Trashion Show & Upcycle Party should contact Mary Moran, email@example.com.
