(picture from google image)Found myself being in such interest for trashion since I went to pasar seni ITB last month. I saw the final of trashion design contest held by Unilever there. It gave a big effect for me, came home with big thought, something to do to with the trash and my accessories. trashion brings a lot of good things for future, poverty reduction, a better living, and of course a greener earth less of waste!

What is trashion? Trashion is a philosophy and an ethic encompassing environmentalism and innovation. Making traditional objects out of recycled materials can be trashion, as can making avant-garde fashion from cast-offs or junk. It springs from a desire to make the best use of limited resources. Trashion is similar to upcycling and refashion, although it began with specific fashion aspirations. Like upcycling, trashion generates items that are valued again, but these may be low-cost or high-cost, perhaps depending on the skill of the artist. -wikipedia-
