Move over tulle and fringe, there’s a new fashion trend in town … recycled fashion!
I am excited to share with you that I will be attending Trash 2 Trends, a yearly fundraiser held for the non-profit organization Keep Orlando Beautiful, this February! This is such a trendy, innovative fashion show where 30+ designers will create garments out of upcycled or recycled material. The designs are showcased by models down a 48 foot runway accompanied by professional lights, musics and continuous oohhh’s and ahhh’s. The purpose of this fundraiser is to educate attendees about the seemingly endless possibilities of materials that many consider trash.
Check out this video of last year’s event for a sneak peek into what its all about:
Although this will be my first year participating, the event is in its 6th year! Trash 2 Trends is graciously presented by SeaWorld Orlando and will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2019.
This event has SOLD OUT the last 4 years! Tickets make awesome stocking stuffers and would be such a fun Girls Night Out! All tickets include food stations with samples from SeaWorld’s 7 Seas menu during cocktail hour and an exquisite dessert and coffee bar later in the evening! Also included in all ticket sales this year is admission to the After Party! You’ll have the opportunity to mingle and meet the fabulous designers and models of Trash 2 Trends and keep the fun of the night going as a DJ plays an array of music after the Runway Show. Plus, there will be a highly regarded raffle prize this year along with a few educational displays with prize potential for those who get involved!
Check out the line-up for Trash 2 Trends 2019:
There will also be a silent auction with items pertaining to upcycling, community engagement and thinking outside the box. All proceeds from the fundraiser go directly back to Keep Orlando Beautiful, a local non-profit, and are used to purchase required materials for weekly outreach events that help the communities of Orlando, such as trees, recycling bins, litter prevention materials, graffiti removal material, educational materials and more.
I’m looking forward to this event and can’t wait to see what fashion creations are showcased! Grab your tickets before they sell out and join me for a night of fun, fashion and creativity!
