[EVENT] Surreal Couture Trash Fashion Show -SF

Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing & Management students from The Art Institute of California – San Francisco invite the public to attend Surreal Couture Trash, an exclusive celebration highlighting environmental awareness, high fashion and art appreciation. The popular Couture Trash event will showcase designs made from recycled materials, ‘trash,’ and mirror past Couture Trash fashion shows.
June 8, 2006. 8pm-midnite
The Canvas Gallery , 1200 Ninth Avenue, San Francisco
Free; Gift bag given with donation

Forget the silks and other luxurious fabrics often associated with haute couture and bring in the chicken wire and plastic wrap! Throw away that cotton and polyester and bring in the street signs and trash bags. It’s unlike any other fashion show in the city!

In addition to promoting environmental awareness, Surreal Couture Trash is drawing inspiration from Surrealism; the art movement dedicated to the expression of the imagination as revealed in dreams. The student designers will take their cues from Surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali, Andre Breton and Rene Magritte as well as the legendary French fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli.

Through unparalleled creativity and awareness, we embrace diversity, passion, dedication, and uphill struggles to reveal a rare and innovative segment of the fashion industry. Through different mediums, we pride ourselves in exploring all avenues of fashion--both Haute Couture and Trash Couture.
