The Haute Trash fashion show was quite an attraction at the Blue Marble Jubilee. We had teachers, students, and administrators modeling our fabulous recycled fashions. The crowd went wild!
This was the first year of what promises to be a great annual family community festival. A colorful, village-style one-day festival, the Blue Marble Jubilee was an Earth-centered event to inspire, educate and empower people to make a difference in the community and our world. The festival is a fundraiser for Grass Valley Charter School, a unique K-8 school offering an expeditionary and adventure curriculum. “We wanted to create a brand new event that the whole community could enjoy and that shows who we are and what we stand for,” said Wendy Willoughby, President of the Grass Valley Charter School Foundation. “Blue Marble Jubilee celebrates what we love about our learning model; being good stewards of the earth and good stewards of the community.”
This was our EIGHTH year performing for the University of Central Missouri’s Earth Day Festival! As the years go by, local designers around Warrensburg have taken on a bigger role in our fashion show. The University’s Fashion Merchandising Department, students from local schools, and community members contributed designs to the show this year. We were at a new venue this year: the Student Recreation and Wellness Center on campus. Big thanks to all our fabulous models!
Haute Trash performed a short fashion show at this showing of the Wild and Scenic Film Festival at the Auburn State Theater on March 18, 2017.

Haute Trash was pleased to take part in this year’s Wild and Scenic Film Festival, the country’s largest Environmental Film Festival. We presented a short recycled fashion show, to a packed Stone Hall at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City. We followed up with a brief Q&A with Prima Debris.
Haute Trash was the featured entertainment at this benefit luncheon for Soroptimists International of Lincoln. Funds were raised towards monetary awards and scholarships for deserving local girls, women and families in the Lincoln, CA community. Our models were students from Lincoln High School’s “S” Club.
Haute Trash came out to support our friend Susan Smith in her fight against breast cancer. We performed two sets, jam-packed with local celebrity models, danced to three amazing local bands, and took part in the fabulous auction. The fundraiser was a huge success!
It was a real feather in our Haute Trash cap to perform for this 9th Annual Paint the Town Pink fundraiser, presented by the Union newspaper, and Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. The focus of the event is breast cancer awareness. About a dozen local celebrities were recruited to model, including doctors, nurses, and prominent community members. Taking on the Emcee duties were Hollie Grimaldi-Flores and Dan Tallafero, who kept the audience in stitches.
Haute Trash Pushes the Envelope! We presented an evening of social commentary through trash fashion. This evening included our runway show, an eco-friendly picnic basket contest, and a 50/50 raffle, with all funds benefitting the Haute Trash Artists Collaborative, a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization.
