The Glam Trash Fashion Show returns for 2021!

When: Saturday, October 2, 2021 from 4pm to 6pm
Where: Historic Taos Plaza

Glam Trash 2018

The Glam Trash Fashion Show is a free public art event featuring a runway contest of recycled wearable art! Contestants sashay to the music of a live band in a glitter filled, smile inducing, all ages celebration of recycling, fashion and creativity. The runway’s return to the Historic Taos Plaza happens thanks to The Town of Taos, Art for the Heart, Seconds Eco Store and the creative efforts of Nicole Kowalski, Jean Nichols & Sara Basehart.

The Glam Trash Fashion Show has been a Taos favorite since its launch by Nicole Kowalski at the Martinez Hacienda in 2001. Expanding to the Stables Gallery courtyard for many years, the ever growing crowd soon needed a larger venue. Its first time on the historic Taos Plaza was in 2012. It has swaggered through the John Dunn House Shops, and promenaded on the cobblestones behind the Old County Courthouse and is returning this year to the heart of Taos, the historic Taos Plaza for 2021.

Entry form is available by emailing or coming by Seconds Eco Store to pick up a paper copy of the entry form.
