Trashion: making beauty out of the discarded!

It’s been ten years since “The Truth is Stranger Than Fashion,” the first Cottage Grove fashion TRASHION show. The event was our first resounding success. And it let us know that Cottage Grove was hungry for a creative center like ours. We’ve carried that energy for over a decade.

Since those first days, we’ve had more than thirty designers on stage and well over a hundred models. And because Opal is built for and with our Cottage Grove arts community, the designers and models have always been local—and never quite who you would expect. A few have been famous, a few have started here and gone pro, all have been inspired and all have been inspirational.

We are very lucky to live in a town with so many interesting and creative people. OPAL is always looking for ways to celebrate

If you’d like to join the fun next year, please get in touch and help us turn trash into magic!
