There’s no doubt that New York City has its fair share of trash. We do our best to ignore it when we see it on our street corners and in mammoth piles in front of our apartments. Maybe that’s where our trash thought process ends – out of sight out of mind, right?

That’s not the case at The NYC Trashion Fashion Show – an outlet for artists, fashion designers and students to make art out of clean waste from the community that would otherwise be tossed into landfills.

The event will take place on May 31st at the Brooklyn Grange at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, which will be transformed into an underwater recycled seascape and feature a sustainable, creative runway to highlight “trashion” fashion designs.
