Did you know that former participants and winners of the Recycle Santa Fe Art Festival have gone on to study design at schools such as Parsons School of Design, Rhode Island School of Design, London College of Fashion, and more! The Trash Fashion & Costume Contest is back after taking a pause due to COVID. Join the fun and submit your application HERE. It's free to enter and the deadline is November 4, 2022
Recycled fashions must be made of at least 75% recycled or reused materials that otherwise would be thrown away or recycled. Vintage clothing and clothes made out of trash bags will not be accepted. Complete outfits recommended. Only one prize per designer.
Recycle Santa Fe's Trash Fashion & Costume Contest has had many high fashion entries, to rival the likes shown in Paris and Milan runways, thanks to the efforts of many budding "Fashionistas." The wildly popular fashion show has never failed to surprise and entertain the crowd and is a great opening event for the festival. Come see extraordinary people transforming garbage to glamour and strutting their stuff down the catwalk. When your kids get tired of that trampoline, do what these folks do--turn it into a hot-looking Goth evening gown!
Distinguished judges have a difficult time judging this event. This show has always been outrageous in the past and we are sure this year it will be a blast!
