Haute Trash alive and well

Recently, there have been several fictitious business statements and dissolutions listed in The Union regarding businesses in Nevada County “who create garments from trash for entertainment purposes.”

Haute Trash was mentioned because, until recently, two entities were using the same name for the same purpose. Consequently, I have been asked many times recently if Haute Trash is “dissolved.” In response, I am writing this letter.

Haute Trash is alive and well. We reorganized in 2006 to become a nonprofit organization: Haute Trash, an Artists Collaborative. We’re celebrating 21 years since Hot Trash’s first group show at the Nevada Theatre (The Big Idea/Local Fashion & Culture) with a very special reunion planned for September at the Miners Foundry.

In 2005, a group of newer designers left Haute Trash to do shows on its own. This group is now known as Troupe de Trash. The formation of the two groups has been good, allowing each to grow in its own direction.
