Rubbish Renewed started as a brainchild of two REALMS teachers. It makes sense then, that student designers are the heart of this event. For these young designers, Rubbish Renewed starts months before the show. It’s a time of creativity, determination and grit. The Rubbish Renewed tagline declares: transforming trash and inspiring community for a more sustainable earth, so inspiring students to rethink waste and learn life skills like perseverance is the perfect indicator of success for Rubbish Renewed. Here are a few quotes from last year’s talented student designers:

“I learned that trash is never gone, but with some creativity we can make magic happen!” Olivia Rose Barnes

“I really had to think outside the box, because finding useful trash materials is harder than using store bought materials.” Jessica Browning

“I learned that it is harder to make a dress for a person then for a doll.” Lilah Beck

“Inspiration can be found in almost anything, and once you find it anything can become something beautiful.” Soleil Haskell

“Through the many challenges of the design process I have learned perseverance.” Ashlie Jackson

“Creating is like a house of cards. It might fall down at first, but then you rethink it a second time.” Sydney Scott

“Through constructing my garment I learned that to create something you find beautiful you must mind meld with those who see its potential.” Isabella Robles

“Trash fashion can be just as cute as store bought clothes, plus it saves our planet.” Joanna Browning

“Turning garbage into fashion is like a bud turning into a rose, it may look like nothing at first, but it will blossom into something beautiful.” Denali Heinlen
