The Trashion Show is inspired by SCC’s commitment to promoting sustainable living.
It is a fashion philosophy that combines environmentalism with innovation. It springs from a desire to make the best use of limited resources by making traditional and avant-garde clothing or objects from recycled materials or cast off junk.
