Trash to treasure?



Trashion_2When I tear through a bag of M&Ms like a rabid beast, I don't think of saving the wrapper for, you know, a quirky headband.  But maybe I should!

If you want inspiration on using the contents of your circular file for fabulous couture, you may want to check out the TRA'shion show this Saturday at ARTpool, an art co-op at 919 First Ave. N. in St. Petersburg. Read the St. Pete Times story here, by our colleague Leonora LaPeter Anton.

20 designers will display their trash-tastic stuff on the runway. Masterpieces include garments made of soda cans, duct tape, magazines and Publix bags. Febreezed, we hope?

Show runs from 8 p.m. till midnight. Admission is $10, and includes drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

Al Gore would be so proud.
