That’s why the first indoor fashion show focuses on sustainable fashion. Instead of buying new The Trashion display encourages recycling and upcycling of found and discarded items.
At Trashion, 20 designers will each be showcasing an avant-garde look. These themes will be created from items that are generally disposed of – either recycling used textiles or upcycling household items and other non-traditional materials.
In preparation for their presentation, Models popped up all over Denver showcasing one-of-a-kind upcycled and upcycled looks, which won’t be on display at the show itself but to generate excitement.
Three models were on display Stanley Market The week before the show. Models are designed by Brandi ShigleyFounder Denver Fashion, Megan Anderson DoyleFounder Doyle costume designAnd Meow Wolf is a wardrobe stylist, Kate Major.

MadBell by Megan Anderson Doyle
Megan Anderson DoyleDesign is a Vintage style dress Made of brown paper bag material. The design of the dress is reminiscent of 1950s style, with pleats around the waist, short sleeves, and a modest V-neck. It is cinched at the waist with a paper belt and tastefully creased. The Doyle Paper Dress showcases deft design and professional construction: the sophisticated silhouette is countered by Doyle’s unconventional and simple choice of materials.
Doyle is Freelance costume designer specializing in live stage design. Besides participating in the show Trashion, Doyle is currently in her 17th season as Fashion design assistant With the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
“As a costume designer for live theatre, I love the collision of art, history and style that is fashion“Doyle said.
Years ago, Doyle said, she made a paper bag dress and loved the quirky style of vintage combined with the “impermanence of fashion.”
“I took the opportunity to revisit this idea with a new design aesthetic and showcase it with exciting designers in a stunning space with absolute waste.” Doyle said. “Having the opportunity to envision a gorgeous look and bring it to the runway using discarded, upcycled and upcycled materials was too good to pass up.”
Designed by Kate Major
Kate MajorDesign is a A 90s grunge masterpiece Made entirely from recycled materials and consisting of used flannel shirts, the skirt has original buttons, pockets and sleeves from the original pieces. The upper portion of the design features a jacket made of leather, denim, and leopard print materials.
On their own, the effect is stunning, but Major took her design up a notch with painted embellishments and gave it something unconventional: kitchenware. The design features forks and spoons tucked under the skirt and whisks that draw the eye to the shoulders, creating an undeniably interesting and unique look.
As the organization’s wardrobe coordinator, Major came to Meow Wolf after working in fashion design Circus of the Sun And Wrigley Brothers Circus. Besides being the mastermind behind the Trashion show, Major made her runway debut at Denver Fashion Week’s fall ’22 show.
