The long-awaited Recycled Runway video

Okay, folks, the video of last Saturday’s Recycled Runway event at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids, Mich. has been posted. I regret that I wasn’t able to interview every designer during the scramble that led up to the show, but the video will take you behind the scenes and let you in on how some of the fabulous creations featured in the show were made.

A special thanks to my overworked husband, Jeff, for producing the video after putting in long hours at the office. The video editing process was interrupted by storm damage. (We lost the metal gazebo on our deck in a gust of wind Sunday.) and other nonsense, but he got it done. Thank you!

Okay, more than enough said. Check out the video… I hope it inspires you to make some “trashion” of your own. I didn’t take still photos at the show, but you can see a few shots on Lynsey Roumell’s Mlive fashion blog.

Terrific! What a trip! Every dress was wonderfully creative. Thanks to you and Jeff for the video and the link to Lynsey Roumell’s blog.

Big thanks to Jeff for doing the video work—I felt like I was almost really there. Which, of course, I was supposed to be.

Also, we have lost two gazebos. I feel your pain.

Thanx for putting this together and on YouTube for those of us who wanted to be there but could not!

it actually wasn’t that long awaited… some of us are just extremely impatient! I’m impressed with the turnover and the video itself, thanks a lot!

Thanks for posting. I enjoyed seeing everyones designs. I saw a lady at the Alleghan fiber fest with a purse made of woven popcan pull tabs and it was really cool. It reminded me of your post about this event. Is this going to be an annual event? I think I would like to get involved next year if it is.
