Salvation Army Garbage Bag Gala 2017 : The Trashy (bag) Collection

This would be my third year participating in the Salvation Army’s Garbage Bag Gala, and instead of competing in the design competition, I showed a special showcase of eight looks completely constructed out of garbage bags and other unconventional materials. This show gave me the opportunity to play with some ideas I’de been tossing around, like working with helium and floating elements and using zippers not only as closures, but as straps and design elements (this would show up again in my 2018 Zippers and Fringe Collection).
