Trash to Treasure

Elvira Mental Werks 'Midnight and Misgivings' designSusan Lamela’s brainchild ‘Haute Trash’ was born in 1983 (making the project older than I am!) http://www.hautetrash.org/about.html

Her idea was to create quality garments out of otherwise unusable trash. A genius example of women seeing the beauty in everything, potential in the most unlikely places, and time and again, turning trash into treasure.

Rayona Visqueen (Robin Worley) and Prima Debris (Kathi Griffis) kept the project alive, even beyond the passing of Susan L. The incredible list of female designers turn out gorgeous designs worthy of any runway. Check them out!

I’m feeling good about resourceful, creative, intelligent women in the fashion industry!! 😀
