The Recycle Santa Fe Art Festival proudly presents the Trash Fashion & Costume Contest! The 2013 contest was held on Friday, November 15 at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center.

To see the 2013 winners and photos click here.

Recycle Santa Fe’s Trash Fashion & Costume Contest has had many high fashion entries, to rival the likes shown in Paris and Milan runways, thanks to the efforts of many budding “Fashionistas.”  The wildly popular fashion show has never failed to surprise and entertain the crowd and is a great opening event for the festival. Come see extraordinary people transforming garbage to glamour and strutting their stuff down the catwalk. When your kids get tired of that trampoline, do what these folks do– turn it into a hot looking Goth evening gown!

Distinguished judges have a difficult time judging this event. This show has always been outrageous in the past and we are sure this year it will be a blast!
