Earlier this month, Discard Avant Garb celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Recycled Fashion Show at the Grand Street Community Arts Center in Albany.

It was, to say the least, the artistic social event of the semester with a runway extravaganza of incredibly cool fashions created from discarded, recycled items.

There were amazing, wearable creations by DAG founding members and organizers like Helen Martin’s “Forgotten Memories” (crafted from antique photos) and Roxanne Storms’ “Snake Charmer” (worn by Larissa Diaz) and created from nylon tubes:

Avant Garb Discard is looking to build their own website, and they’d like you to be part of it. If you’ve got photos or videos or commentary on the fashion extravaganza, please send a note or a link to G.G. Roberts at gg2smart@aol.com

And stay tuned for next year’s DAG recycled fashion blow-out, which promises to be even bigger and better.
