Last night was the second annual Curb Couture Trashion Show, a fashion show fund-raiser featuring clothes made partially or entirely of recycled materials. Local designers used aluminum cans, plastic bags, newspapers, chip bags, cardboard boxes, and other discarded materials to create their own unique designs and support the work of Memphis City Beautiful and neighborhood beautification and greening projects.
Of course, on the way to the event, my camera battery died. Was it hoping to be turned into a snappy broach or a statement necklace? Too bad for it, I'm not as crafty as the designers in the showcase; too bad for me, I had to take all my photos on my iPhone.
Now, in the words of Alexis Grace: Are you ready to see some trash?
