Trashion Show

7 p.m. $7-$10. Sammy's, 509 Main St., Boise, 208-921-1005, bombshellboise.com.


One person's trash is another's haute couture—or something like that.

OK, so it's not the most common saying, but in honor of Earth Day, Boise's Bombshell Salon is finding a way to show that you can go green and still look good.

The salon is hosting a fashion show that illustrates what can happen when recyclable materials are put in the hands of the creative and fashion conscious.

The trashion show will hit the runway at 8 p.m. at Sammy's bar in downtown Boise, as designs made completely of post-consumer recycled materials compete for first- through third-place awards.

But the party gets going even earlier with live music at 7 p.m. from Melissa Wilson, of the Boise Cello Project, as well as classic cover band Carmel and the Closers. The music and dancing will continue after the show, with a DJ spinning the tunes.

The price of admission includes entry into numerous raffle drawings for prizes, including services at Bombshell Salon, Aveda products, bar tabs from 10th Street Station and Sammy's, and gift certificates from the likes of Jump Time, The Old Spaghetti Factory and the Idaho Steelheads.

Who knows, maybe you will even win a tattoo session.

The event is a fundraiser for the ClearWater Initiative and Idaho Rivers United—both of which share the goal of keeping our waters nice and clean. Organizers hope to raise $1,000 through the event.

Advanced tickets are available online at brownpapertickets.com for $7 or at the door for $10.
