San Francisco designer Lotta Rubbish (Nic Griffin) represented for Haute Trash at a recent fashion show in Vallejo, at the Artiszen Gallery. The “RE-Fashion Show” was billed as a fashion show with renewed purpose.
In honor of Earth Day, this show presented different ways you can do your part to preserve the Earth’s resources. Whether it’s REcycling trash and turning it into “trashion”, RE-playing fashions from the past, or RE-instilling life into worn clothes with tie dye, these clothes have been RE-invented, RE-purposed, RE-mixed and RE-created into fun, fabulous, and over the top outfits.
The Artiszen Cultural Arts Center is a place for people to gather, create, and enjoy art in all forms. It is a beautiful and elegant addition to the Vallejo arts community. The current show at the gallery (through May 20) is “WISDOM/ART/RESISTANCE: Powered by Women”, an exhibition featuring women over 50. All are welcome! The Artiszen Cultural Arts Center is located at 337 Georgia St, Vallejo, CA.
