Garbage Bag Gala Raises Awareness About Homelessness

The Salvation Army ran a fashion show at the Moonrise Hotel to raise awareness about homelessness. Designers and models featured fashions made entirely of trash bags and duct tape.

Trash bag couture. That’s what the Moonrise Hotel and The Salvation Army St. Louis served up Friday night at the Garbage Bag Gala.

The Project Runway-like event highlighted The Salvation Army's homeless services as models showcased creations made of garbage bags and duct tape, created by some of St. Louis's top fashion designers. Models took both casual and evening wear looks to the runway, turning trash into high fashion.

An extensive photo gallery from the night is available on the University City Patch Facebook page: www.facebook.com/universitycitypatch.)

The event was emceed by Heidi Glaus of KSDK. Fashion judges included Debra Bass of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Fox2News meteorologist Angela Hutti and Alive Magazine's Gwen Ragno. 

All proceeds from the event went to The Salvation Army St. Louis.
