SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

A south St. Louis hair salon is raising awareness for clean water with a trash-themed fashion show.

Salon Fleur de Lis is an Aveda salon, a company that uses eco-friendly products.

All over the world, Aveda salons hold ‘Catwalks for Water’ fashion shows that feature clothing made of recyclable materials, often things considered trash.

It was owner Alicia Strobl’s idea to bring the concept to St. Louis.

“We're kind of upcycling all the items and creating our very own "trash-ion" show,” said Strobl, “It’s really cool how you can repurpose all of these things and make such cool designs.”

Stylists are using everything from plastic bags to beer cans to craft creative outfits that will be modeled at the Caramel Room at Bissinger’s on February 19.

All proceeds will benefit Audubon Missouri, a group that promotes clean water and environmental health for wetland creatures.

“We want to let people know it’s important to us as a community, and it is important to wildlife,” Strobl said.
