WHAT IS PARAGON?

par·a·gon

/ˈperəˌɡän/

  1. A person or thing viewed as a model of excellence.


PARAGON is our second annual eco-fashion show hosted by Project: Trashion at the University of Waterloo, a student-driven initiative that aims to improve educating sustainability through entertainment and creativity.

This year, the eco-fashion show “PARAGON” presents an ever-evolving cultural paradigm to the youths of the world and how we have the power to choose to live more sustainably. A show that encompasses the limitless potential and creativity for our lifestyle and fashion choices with sustainability at the heart and mind.

Join us and see your friends and family walk the runway with a mission - to be a role model. To showcase fashion from local organizations and business that embraces aspects of circular fashion, thrifting, fair trade, eco-consciousness and so much more.

THE FASHION SHOW SEGMENTS

  1. Sustainable Businesses - To consume new fashion ethically, consciously and sustainably. We will be showcasing businesses, designers and trailblazers of the conscious consumption movement with eco-conscious and fair-trade principles at their core.

  2. Thrift - Reuse, Restyle and Revitalize your creativity. Use what you own, borrow from others, swap and purchasing pre-loved clothing are all the cornerstone of this segment. Creative stylists and visionaries will be showcasing what they can do, with what is available to them with the help of local thrift organizations.

  3. Trashion - Art and Fashion Made from Waste. Paragon’s waste segment highlights a material that is an indispensable yet disposable aspect of our lives and the consequences it brings: plastic.
