Trashion Show

Fashioning sustainability

About the Project

The MIT Trashion Show is an annual fashion show that celebrates creative fashion design and promotes waste reduction and sustainability. Student designers from MIT and other Boston-area schools create pieces made of trash and recycled materials, which are then modeled on the runway.
