2009 Junk to Funk Recycled Fashion Show Contest

Call to Artists!! 4th Annual Junk to Funk Recycled Fashion Show Contest “Trashion Edutainment for the Masses” will be held November 14, 2009. Deadline for Submissions: October 14, 2009. "Restoring the Earth by Creatively Transforming Our Engagement with Stuff". Junk to Funk is an annual evening event of outrageous wearable art and imaginative fashion couture all designed with "trash”. Artists, designers and members of the creative public are called to innovatively design the discarded into striking costumes out of used trash, found objects and recycled materials and win cash prizes up to $500. In addition to the usual Trash Couture Contest, consider the New Textile Challenge: Up cycle and reconstruct trashed or used textiles for stylish functional everyday clothing. Refashion that used upholstery, reconstruct that shirt, and reinvent that tent, save it from the landfill and give it a new life. Junk to Funk is a collective of art, education, environment, business and policy innovators who inspire individuals towards responsible consumerism, creative re-use and conscientious disposal by providing unique fashion based entertainment and educational opportunities. Click on the trash can to the left to download rules/application (doc.file). Share the joy of creating more and consuming less!
