Seeking outlandish, quirky, offbeat, fantastical, unconventional, atypical, visionary looks for the first ever Paonia Trash and Nature Fashion Show! This is a show made entirely of non-traditional materials.
We’ll be judging based on outlandishness, creative use of materials, attention to detail, and how intricate the piece(s) are.
