Texas Campaign for the Environment is turning 20! To celebrate, they are putting on a fundraising fashion show.  For one night, TCE will re-purpose and take over an old store in Highland Mall for a fashion show challenge where 25 local amateur, professional and student designers will compete to create wearable fashion looks made from recycled materials.  A fabulous panel of judges including Marques Harper, Stephen Moser, Gail Chovan, Andrea Mellard and Leslie Bonnell will all be in attendance.

Individual tickets are $50, and sponsorship levels are listed below. All proceeds will benefit TCE, an award-winning, non-partisan, non-profit organization that mobilizes Texans through grassroots advocacy. Click here to buy tickets.

The proceeds from the Trash Makeover will launch an ambitious “No Legislator Left Behind Campaign” sending TCE’s grassroots organizers to knock on doors in every corner of the state so that every Texas lawmaker and legislative candidate hears from pro-environment voters in the year ahead.
