Turning Trash Into Fashion

Gather all of your fashion loving friends for our JUNKcraft Recycling Fashion Show on Saturday, September 30 in our Grand Lobby. This event is in conjunction with our JUNKraft: Plastic Pollution Solutions exhibit, currently on display at the Putnam. Enjoy an evening of light refreshments and fashion, with a cash bar. Admission is $25.

With the JUNKraft exhibit as inspiration, this is a fashion event where the fashions are made from trash. Designers collect recycled materials and craft a “garment” using at least 70% reused materials. Designers will present dresses, jackets, suits, or anything their model can wear down the runway.

With each garment made of plastic bottles, discarded plastic grocery bags, or any other discarded material, we tell the story of the prolific nature of single-use plastics and their detrimental effect on the environment.
