Trashion Fashion show Saturday at ARTpool Gallery!
Is your home overrun with old shower curtains and empty Diet Coke cans? Pile them on your head and go to ARTpool Gallery in St. Petersburg Saturday for Trashion Fashion, the trashiest fashion show in town. More than 20 designers are showing amazing couture creations made from recycled materials.
This is always a big show in town, but this year it's going to be even bigger. I stopped by Marina Williams' new gallery recently, and guys, it is HUGE. The old gallery was a bit cramped, but these days, Marina has a massive outdoor space in addition to the roomy store. She told me there will be a runway, fancy lights, sound, art, music. The models are going to be styled by Aveda hairstylists. Here's the story I wrote about the new space.
ARTpool's Trashion Fashion show runs from 8 p.m. to midnight Saturday at ARTpool, 2030 Central Avenue, right across from Haslam's Book Store. General admission is $20 in advance, $25 day of. You can buy them online here. VIP seating is $45 and includes a swag bag, two free drinks and snacks. All ages are welcome.
Marina wants everyone to wear fun stuff made from doodads lying around your house if you're so inspired! It just so happens, my house IS full of the above-mentioned Diet Coke cans. I thought since we were talking about Trashion, this was a great time to show you something I actually made with my surplus of cans at a crafting party last weekend.
It's supposed to be a windchime, but it could be a hat for the fashion show if affixed the right way, no?
Here's to recycling! It's the ultimate Deal Diva thing to do.
