Fashion Forward: Glamorous Trash
You know what they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure. Now, a hot new label is turning fabric scraps into style. Here's Shireen Sandoval with more in tonight's fashion forward.
WSVN -- Who knew all this time, oscar the grouch was ahead of his time.
This season, here's something new: Trash is actually trendy.
Roberto O'Henrichson: "Trash was started about two years ago and it's a very young, Avant Garde, couture company."
Actually, there's really nothing trashy about this label. The clothes are made from left over fabric but we're talking very high-end leftovers like Channel and Valentino.
Roberto: "The clothes in a way are magical and we want to give that feeling that little fairies have made the clothing."
But not only will you look magical, you'll feel magical dressed in incredible detailing and eye-catching colors.
Roberto: "We wanted to give the feeling that you found something in a treasure chest."
Something you'll find nowhere else.
Celebs like Madonna, Penelope Cruz, and Emma Thompson have fallen in love with this hot new line. Even Amy Lee of Evanescence stole the show at the Grammy's in her gown.
Roberto: "It has no kind of, the type of women who love it, it's young, it's old, it's just everything, it's just you have to have that kind of spirit, that kind of ahhhh, that umph, that exuberance."
You just have to be willing to take a risk, like try pairing a bustier or tunic with your favorite pants, and just watch as garbage becomes golden.
Robert: "It's very much attune to nature our work and Florida is that. It has that combination, it has nature, but it also has the lifestyle of parties and ceramonies."
Trash even has dresses for the most important ceremony of all - your wedding.
Robert: "They say God is in the details and it is about that because the work is not made, it's not made to impress people from afar. its really made to be loved, to be looked at from up close."
Trash is being sold at Saks Fifth Avenue. If you do decided to pick something up from this label, keep in mind you really are buying a piece of art. Christie's auction house in new york has already started documenting all of these designs.
