Installation: J2F Celebrates Portland's Ban on Plastic Bags
|We were so thrilled that Portland finally joined the cities and countries across the nation in trashing this unnecessary single use disposable nuisance, we wanted to celebrate with plastic bag Trashion. The installation is located on SW 10th at Alder in the Galleria building in downtown Portland and will remain up through January.
This installation is viewable from the sidewalk 24 hours a day, just in case you get a 4:00am itch for Trashion. Special thanks to the PDX Storefront program for funding this project!
Installation: J2F (hearts) PDX
|Our first installation titled 'Junk to Funk [hearts] PDX' highlighted not only our love for Portland and the celebration of our city’s leadership in recycling but called on the public for an entire new way of looking at waste through reducing and creatively reusing.|
Junk to Funk Anniversary Event
Portland Fashion Week 2010
We were honored to be asked by Portland Fashion Week to create a trashion display for their 2010 opening night. Being a sustainability focused fashion show we thought it was appropriate to create an installation titled "The Story of Fashion: Fashion As Usual v. Fashion Forward". The installation featured 5 new couture garments created out of waste textiles.
A huge appreciation to designers Jen LaMastra, Taylor Stevenson, Traci Price and Ruth Waddy and models Kelly English, Erin McGarry, Chelsea Piel and Tanya Cheeke.
