This gorgeous gown, from last year's show, was created by designer Ernesto Lopez out of blue jeans and vintage lace curtains. Here's you opportunity to study the intricate details of this lovely piece. It will be on display for at least a few weeks.
So excited to have such a nice set up for Discardia during the Bloom Artist Showcase event, happening today at the Bloomington Convention Center until 5pm.
Brave the snow and come out and see all of the amazing artists and beautiful work!
The new window display at Gather in the Fountain Square Mall will have you seeing red!
For the next month, you can get a close-up look at “Construction in Red" from the 2014 show, designed by Danielle Urschel and Jennifer Deam (modeled by Katherine Thomas, left). Plastic fencing and bits of hardware were used to create this amazing outfit.
February 6 - the day of the next Gallery Walk - is National Wear Red Day. The #bloomingtongoesred windows around town are in support of American Heart Association - Go Red for Women - bringing awareness to the fact that “heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, killing more than all forms of cancer combined. For more than a decade the red dress has been the symbol of women joining together to end heart disease. When you wear the red dress, you are raising your voice to save the lives of women.”
Gallery staff will wear red on February 6, and have some literature available.

We owe a big thanks to Talia at "Gather" for welcoming Bloomington Trashion to kick off our 2015 Call for Entries in this beautiful location! It's our hope that many people were able to enjoy this window display during the annual after-Thanksgiving tradition of lighting the Bloomington Square, but in case you missed it, we have another opportunity for you.
Celebrate the official opening for the 2015 Call for Entries with the Trashion committee and designers on Friday, December 5th from 5-8pm during Gallery Walk at Gather in Fountain Square Mall. We'll have refreshments and plenty to talk about as we look forward to all of our incoming 2015 submissions!
