Think you have the upcycling chops to become the next Trashionista Gloriosa!?

Criteria for judging: The goal is to use as much recycled material that is SAVED from the landfill as possible! A panel of 5 glorious judges will evaluate the entries based on amount of material recycled, craftsmanship, function, panache and their own personal opinion.

Bribing the Judges: We know it’s a Kinetic tradition, and that’s cool. No one will get mad if you give them a present! Bribing the judges is never a requirement though. You do you. We’re judging the art, not the swag.

Winning Categories and Prizes: This year, we will have the following opportunities for glory.

  • Grand Prize Winner - Trashionista Gloriosa - Outfit will be featured in a Morris Graves Museum of Art show, you will win the most glorious prize and have massive bragging rights!

  • First Runner-Up - You will get the next most glorious prize and lots of oohs and ahhs from an adoring crowd!

  • Best Accessory/ Footwear - You will get a special and unique prize and lots of glory for your fabulous accessory or footwear

  • Junior Winner - Extra special Glory for the under 18 crowd with accompanying super prize!

Kinetic Kouture 2019 will be the first Saturday evening in October, so start diverting trash to your maker space now!
