The June 3rd event at Linger Cafe & Lounge was our first "Trashy Chic" Thursday. Why Trashy Chic? We came up with the moniker because it characterizes what we do. We design our crafts by recycling discarded remnants of materials (umbrellas, old garments, plastic bags, found objects and more). In a nutshell, this is the rationale behind “Trashy Chic”.
At our first presentation, I was joined by the very talented and outstanding Stephanie Huffaker who makes jewelry out of discarded plastic bags. Those present were in awe at the ingenuity behind her work, and the symbiosis between dresses and jewelry made out of discarded materials was needless to say inescapable.
Stay tune for more exciting "Trashy Chic" events.
Here are some pictures of the event, enjoy.
