Haute Trash: An Artists Collaborative

A non-profit 501(c)3 Organization

Myra Bish – Lauren Melevin

From a sturdy pair of sandals made from a used tire, to a crafty bracelet made out of can tabs, it takes only a small piece of rubbish to inspire this sustainable sister to design for the runway. Always having a strong desire to reduce waste, Myra spent two summers working in the compost only to realize that trash doesn’t have to be so dirty. She now prefers spending her time defying waste in her studio atelier in Whitefish, Montana, where design flourishes and trash does not pile up. Wait too long for her and she may be gone, this fashionista jumps at the chance for the next adventure. From Tokyo to Tanzania, Myra is always looking for the latest international flare. Even though she is often on the go, chances are you will find her at every Haute Trash show.
