Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, chances are you have either been to, heard about, wished you’d gone or at least browsed a few images from the Coachella music and arts festival. True to the style of any growing festival; the festivities, art, and performances get bigger and better each year. Coachella’s numero uno “wow” visual arts piece this year was without question the surprise “live” hologram Tupac performance. I wasnt there but if it looked half as real as the video, its must have been trippy.
Even more; the pages of pinterest, tumblr and fashion blogs everywhere feature the fashion trends spotted at Coachella.
In my opinion these “trends” have been around for quite some time, labeled “boho chic”, “60′s inspired” or whatever other category you want to put it in; crop tops, cut out shorts, floral prints, and polka dots have been trendy for quite some time now, making them more of a fashion theme seen at Coachella. However, the “TRASHed at Coachella” project, started in 2004 by Global Inheritance, mixes sustainability, with art, in an effort to, “inspire people to act responsibly and make the right small, everyday choices, which are the ones that matter and create change.”. This trend I’ve seen festivals and companies continuously implement over the years.
“TRASHed at Coachella” invites artists to design their own refuse bins in hopes of creating an environment that encourages people to pitch in and toss their trash where it’s supposed to go. Here are a few of my faves from this year:
