WHERE: Intiman Theater

WHAT: As a part of Seattle Center’s 50th anniversary bonanza, designers from around the PNW and beyond—including members of the original Haute Trash Artist Collaborative from around the country—show how one man’s trash can be another man’s full-length ball gown. During both two hour shows of Trash Fashion Futures, trashionistas will explore the last 50 years of waste and fashion trends, and imagine what the next 50 years might look like—both on the runway, and in our recycling bin.

What can you expect to see? Outfit highlights include miles of crocheted video tape and a negligee made from tea bags. Models will walk on a stage designed by environmental sculptor Barbara De Pirro, who is currently showing at Tacoma Art Museum.

WHEN: June 8 and 9 at 8; admission is $25, tickets are available online.
