Trashy fashionistas hit the catwalk

See the fashion treasures that are lurking in local dumpsters at the RE Store’s Trash Fashion Show on Saturday night. Little did you know that old construction fencing could be transformed into Marie Antoinette’s hoop skirt, old records could make her bustier and all those ruffles are tossed out window shades.

There are two fashion shows, both at the New York Fashion Academy (5201 Ballard Ave NW). The all-ages show starts at 7 p.m., the 21 and older starts at 9:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $13. More information can be found here.

Can’t make it to the shows? The RE Store will be live tweeting the early show. Their Twitter feed is @theREStoreTweet.
