Prima Debris – Kathi Griffis

Prima Debris has been involved with trash fashion since 1986. Her extensive background as a third generation seamstress was put to good use as she converted from needle and thread to duct tape and staples. Roadside debris often has her screeching to a stop on a narrow shoulder, to score some groovy piece of trash. Research never stops for Prima. Always testing new materials and keeping her designs on the cutting edge, she’s finding it hard to find time for a day job. Prima has produced dozens of shows since Haute Trash’s California “rebirth” in 2001. Roadtripping with Haute Trash is one of her favorite pastimes and she looks forward to branching out ever-farther. Kathi currently serves as Executive Director to Haute Trash.
