Started as a small community fundraiser, the WabiSabi Fashion Show has become an annual must see event in Moab, UT a town known for its extreme recreation. The fashion show brings out the extreme in winter entertainment, which every year promises to be more extravagant and eclectic than ever.
Each year artists and designers create outrageous theme based-fashion lines that are auctioned off as a fundraiser for Moab’s nonprofit organizations. Fashion designers whose intricate outfits are crafted by hand and only from recycled materials have sold for more than $600. Outfits from previous shows have included gladiators costumed in a kaleidoscope armor made from aluminum cans, dresses glittering with patterns made from smashed mirrors, and a "fur coat" made entirely from kids' stuffed animals. The 2011 fashion show theme was "Intergalactic" with each designer creating out of this world wearable art. This year marks the ninth anniversary of the event in Moab.
