Ridgestock 2023

How fun to be back at Ridgestock! Our roots here run deep, we did shows here back in the early 2000s. Fresh off our tour of Oregon Country Fair, forty outfits were presented for our very receptive audience! We even had some new and very young trash designers presenting their designs!

First Friday Art Walk ~ Nevada City

We were so happy to perform for the last First Friday Art Walk of the summer. Catching up on the latest fashion trends has never been easier! Our models strutted their stuff on the crosswalk of Commercial Street — it made a perfect runway! Thanks to Nevada City Chamber of Commerce for including us in their fabulous event!

Oregon Country Fair!

It was such a thrill to be back at Oregon Country Fair! Our last appearance there had been in 2019, where we presented a show to honor the 50th Anniversary of OCF. We were back in full force, with our second generation of Haute Trash designers really stepping up to the plate! We  presented daily shows at Stage Left and at the StewardShip Stage in Xavanadu Meadow. We featured all-new, epic trash-wear from the fringes of society. Haute Trash reminds you that today is the very best day to take that step towards being the change you want to see in the world. There is no more powerful moment than right now. We hope to inspire you to be aware of your consumption and waste and to become stewards of the natural world around you.

Bringing Out the Trash – Fantastic Fashions for Earth Day

April 22, 2023


Haute Trash was back at the Wild Eye Pub for another Earth Day Extravaganza! It was a runway packed with sensational recycled fashion, as only Haute Trash, with our troupe of dumpster-diving designers, can deliver! Returning to our stage as master of ceremonies was the renowned John Deaderick, who met the challenge of describing our eye-popping, mind-bending fashions!

Haute Trash at Berkeley Salsa Festival

Haute Trash had a fabulous time, hosting a selfie photo booth at the Ecology Center’s Berkeley Farmers’ Market Salsa Festival! Festival attendees were able to put on some trashy attire and have their photo taken. Fabulous live music and salsa dancing were enjoyed by all. Above are your booth hostesses, Lotta Rubbish and Prima Debris.

Haute Trash’s New Earth Revue

We made quite an Earth Day commotion at the Wild Eye Pub, with our first show in over TWO years! Our “NEW EARTH REVIEW” was met with wild enthusiasm, with a sell out crowd! We featured over 60 designs from a dozen trashy designers. Master of Ceremonies Cosmo Merryweather guided us through a thought-provoking look into what’s new in the world of recycled fashion.  Haute Trash maintains its lifetime guarantee that YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT YOUR TRASH THE SAME AGAIN.

Trash is the New Black – A Fall Fashion Fest

October 23, 2019


Haute Trash returned to the Wild Eye Pub with an all-new line up of fantastic trash fashions! Trash is the New Black, or hadn’t you heard? We’re keeping up with latest in recycled trends! Our emcees, Mikail Graham and Kenny Miele were our hosts, as we explored what can be done with discarded items that just can’t seem to make their way to the landfill. A grand time was had on Wild Eye’s Recycle Runway!

Haute Trash is a social fashion commentary satire, examining the wastefulness of American culture, and stressing the potential for transforming the way we use resources in our lives.

Expect the unexpected. Pivot: The Art of Fashion returned to the Rio Theatre, with a fabulous night of performance fashion, where artist’s creations transcend the imagination and designer’s collections awe the crowd and blur the lines between fashion and art.

Ridgestock Music & Sustainability Festival

August 16 & 17, 2019


Haute Trash was super excited to return to the Ridgestock Festival, after fifteen years. It was fun to help them celebrate 20 years of putting on this epic event on the San Juan Ridge! This was the last hurrah for the event, so how appropriate that Haute Trash was there to present the latest in recycled fashions!


We presented a “teaser” show on Friday evening, featuring our local youth and teens, and some of our all-star models. The sultry Daria Kent served as our MC. And then a full length show was presented Saturday night, hosted by local celeb, Mikail Graham.  What a fantastic and receptive crowd! We rallied 25 of our best models and featured 36 designs, which were a retrospective of the last 20 years of trash fashion design. We really felt at home, as Haute Trash has its roots DEEP in the San Juan Ridge! What a great show. We wish the best in her new endeavors to Ridgestock producer, Roo Cantada.
