Glam Trash Taos

In 2001, the Glam Trash Fashion Show was first launched and became an immediate success. This annual event has become a popular favorite with Taos audiences. Every year, youth and adults create imaginative outfits from everyday trash items. It is a way to celebrate creativity while bringing up issues of waste and consumption.

The Glam Trash Fashion Show is a free public art event featuring a runway of recycled wearable art! There will be live music while between 30-50 contestants sashay down a raised runway wearing their artsy creations! It is a glitter filled, smile inducing, all ages celebration of recycling, fashion and creativity. This is the 15th show in 17 years and is happening on the Historic Taos Plaza thanks to The Town of Taos, Art for the Heart, Seconds Eco Store and the creative efforts of Nicole Kowalski, Jean Nichols and Sara Basehart!

This year the contestants will compete for an array of prizes, which include cash and gift certificates. All outfits must be made of 90% recycled materials. All outfits are graded in the category of the age of the person who constructed them.

The categories this year are:

Kids: 12 years and under
Teens: 13 to 19 years old
Adults: 20+ years old

Entry forms available at Seconds Eco Store in the John Dunn House Shops or by calling 575-770-7790. If you decide last minute to start a recycled creation do not fear as entries will be taken up to the last few days before the show.
