Trashion Fashion at Dinnerware!

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 10:00 AM

“Trashion Fashion” is recycling in style—reusing items and clothing to create art, jewelry, attire and objects for the home.

David Aguirre, the creator of the Presidio Fashion Exchange, believes that now is the time for Tucson creatives to strut their fashion stuff.

Aguirre started the Presidio Fashion Exchange in September—but this is not your usual clothing swap. Instead, the event is based on recycling, re-purposing and reusing.

Aguirre said that items that have outlived their original purpose are considered trash—but look at them from a new perspective, and they can often be re-purposed into new forms of beauty and use.

The event is a creative market, with a variety of artsy, re-purposed and recycled items. It’s a place to display work, pick up odds and ends, and get ideas on ways to reuse and re-purpose.

Tucson area artists and designers are invited to sell work at the fashion exchange. It’s free to set up a booth, and chairs and tables are provided.

“This is a group of like-minded creatives advocating recycling and re-purposing, and showing that fantastic beauty can be the result,” said Aguirre.

The event is free, and items cost anywhere from $1 to $100.

There is also be a District Clothing Trade table, featuring clothing that is ready to be passed on and recycled. Bring at least five items, and take as many new-to-you items as you will use.

The Presidio Fashion Exchange takes place most Saturday mornings, from 8 a.m. to noon, in the Dinnerware Artspace Parking Lot, 425 W. Sixth St. For more information, search for “Presidio Fashion Exchange” on Facebook.
