This year I once again have the opportunity to attend Trash 2 Trends, a yearly fundraiser for the nonprofit organization Keep Orlando Beautiful. The purpose of this fundraiser is to educate attendees about the seemingly limitless possibilities of materials that many consider trash. In addition, all proceeds from the event are then put directly back into the nonprofit side where the funds are used to purchase required outreach event materials to ensure volunteer safety, impactful changes, and overall community engagement.
Trash 2 Trends comprises 35 designers who created dresses/garments from all upcycled/recycled materials. The dresses are then showcased in a fashion show type environment at the event. The event also includes judges who crown 5 dresses winners based on 5 different categories. The event is graciously presented by SeaWorld Orlando where where over 500+ attendees enjoy drinks and food, live interest pieces before the runway show, photo opportunities, eye popping designs and much more!
New for this year is a fun cocktail hour which includes reception style food and heavy hors d’oeuvres. The fashion show starts at 8 pm and during the intermission you will enjoy an exquisite dessert and coffee bar. Don’t forget your wallet as there is a fun Silent Auction and cash bar available during the event.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday, February 3 at 7 pm. Tickets start at just $49 and can be purchased online. Tickets include free parking.
