Litter Free Auroville's
AUROVILLE, 29 Jan. 2010
Friday night 27 designers displayed clothes and accessories made only from waste materials in a "Trashion" Fashion Show, the grand finale of the Litter-Free Auroville campaign to encourage recycling and waste reduction.
The designers, who came from Auroville and all around India , transformed a wide range of recycled materials including vinyl records, cassette tapes, tetrapak juice boxes, bubblewrap, rice sacks and plastic shopping bags, into stunning catwalk-ready creations. Materials for the clothes and accessories came primarily from Auroville's Eco-Service (Auroville's solid waste management organization), factory waste and household trash.
- Victorian-era-inspired woven packing plastic see-through hoop skirt and bodice; created and modeled by French designer Arlet.
- Woven cassette-tape handbags; designed by Roberta Keeping.
