Trashion – Fashion that Creates Awareness

How about a new dress made from trash that people threw into the ocean? Trashion designer Marina DeBris turns ocean rubbish into haut couture. With her exceptional artwork she wants to create more awareness for the worldwide marine pollution. Her art and fashion is a call for taking more care of our environment. With her so called Trashion – fashion made from trash – she works with her non-profit organization and is also active in art education and environmental education.

STROKE has been founded in 2009 in Munich by the brothers  Marco and Raiko Schwalbe in order to bring their vision of art, design and urban life style of the 21st century closer to their audience. The idea of STROKE was it to question the obsolete understanding of the so called high crop and pop culture.
