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.
Whilst running along the beaches of Venice she came up with the idea to create fashion with all the trash that soils our beaches.

From 4th to 8th May, the STROKE ART FAIR, is taking place in Munich again.
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.
For STROKE the mix , interaction and impact of diverse creative expressions like contemporaneous art, design, music and fashion is one of the most significant changes of the 21st century and this is consequently the backbone of the event.
