This Week: Garbage Bag Gala at Moonrise Hotel

We’ve been hard at work on this event for months now and this week, we get to see all of our hard work come to fruition.

This Friday night, 17 models and designers will feature their casual and formal creations made out of garbage bags and duct tape on the runway (grand staircase) at Moonrise Hotel! Some of the creations we’ve seen are absolutely awe-inspiring – from trash bag wedding dresses to mermaid-inspired creations.

These models and designers have been hard at work for the fun of it – and also because they believe in the cause – Salvation Army homeless shelters in the St. Louis region. Check out this blog from model Andreea Cojocariu for more on why she’s so supportive of this event and The Salvation Army in Missouri.
