Cardboard trees transformed Hartford’s City Hall on Saturday for the Trashion Fashion Show, an event designed to promote environmental awareness.
Live drumming gave models — mostly shoeless — a rhythm for the runway.
Some footwear made stilettos look like a joke.
Designers were challenged to create garments by reusing materials. Some fashioned dresses out of t-shirts. One dress was crocheted out of stretched VHS tapes.
Proceeds from the third annual Trashion Fashion Show will go to the Sustainable Farm School.
Garments were on display at various locations in the building.
Vendors made use of an upper level, selling jewelery, furniture, cookie cutters, cat and dog treats, clothing, bath products, and other handmade items.
