‘Big Trash, Small World’ show Friday

Take a second look at trash in a unique event this Friday. Haute Trash will present an evening of wine, food and haute couture from 6 to 9 p.m. at Pilot Peak Winery in Penn Valley.

Haute Trash takes a look at the worldwide trash problem with this showing of new fashion works from a dozen designers around the globe.

It’s 2014, do you know where your trash is? “Away” is a real place, located all around the world. Haute Trash has been intercepting and utilizing this valuable resource for 30 years now, with the message: “Don’t throw it out… WEAR it out!”

Our refuse, and what we do with it, is absolutely a concern of each of us around the world. Since 1988, it has been the mission of Haute Trash to invite each of us, as individuals, to examine our role in establishing alternative ways of thinking about our trash. From recycling to upcycling (reusing), even considering our purchases and their value and longevity, as well as the packaging accompanying these purchases, Haute Trash seeks to keep the conversation alive, according to Haute Trash.

The evening’s event begins with wine from Pilot Peak Winery and a dinner prepared by LJ’s Catering. As the evening progresses, Haute Trash will present a full-length fashion show featuring the trendy, creative and astounding trash fashion our fans have come to know and love. Skilled models will walk the runway, exhibiting eye-opening and provocative designs, accompanied by a witty tongue-in-cheek narrative sure to engage the audience, and live music performed by Blue Shadows.

A fundraiser for Haute Trash Artists Collaborative, a nonprofit Organization, the event includes a 50/50 Raffle, and Wine Toss Game, in which participants can win a bottle of wine.

Tickets are $50 and are available online at http://www.pilotpeak.com, BriarPatch Co-op and Make Local Habit in Grass Valley, as well as at The Blue Cow Deli in Penn Valley. For more information, visit http://www.hautetrash.org.

Haute Trash has been an active group in the local community since 1988, originally staging shows at the Nevada Theatre. Driven by the over-abundance of trash worldwide, these savvy designers have been creating high fashion from discarded items, as a testament to the wasteful ways of our society. Over the years, their designer base has grown, and their reach now includes annual events all around the country: Hawaii, Oregon, Washington and Missouri. They offer educational opportunities for all ages all around the world.
