The 11th annual Trash the Runway – Recycled Couture fashion show will feature creative designs from students from Common Threads Creative Lab’s guided independent study program. The fashion show is a platform for ambitious designers to craft eye-catching creations.

Originally the fashion show was to be held in-person this winter. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will take place digitally on Tuesday, June 30.

“The designers are required to find their materials in the trash,” Tanja Leonard, executive director of Trash the Runway said. “They may not use anything that can go in the recycling or composting bin in the City of Boulder. The materials need to be no longer useable for its original purpose.”
