Slideshow: Trashion Show proves that your trash is another’s fashion treasure

Just when you figure that a student’s take on pop culture begins with Miley Cyrus and ends with Caitlyn Jenner, you hear from Kevin Tejada ’17.

A regular designer for the annual Trashion Show, Tejada, of Mount Kisco, N.Y., looked at his model, Elise Krims ’16 of Concord, Mass., on Wednesday night and quipped that “if Barbarella and Madonna had a child, this would be her.”

Held in the packed Gray Athletic Building, the ninth edition of the show once again featured wearable runway designs created by students from trash, recyclables, and junk. Kirk Read, professor of French and francophone studies, was the MC.

The event was presented by the college’s EcoReps, trained student leaders who work toward a more environmentally sustainable Bates.
