"And who are you? Who's the man behind the curtain here in trash Kingdom?" Because we've often only been taught that what hides must be suspect, when really, there are those of us who are shy. The introvert finds his royal Divinity, and so the wizard dutifully steps behind the curtain.
Firstly, this is our ethos. Whatever form Trash Kingdom takes. As small as an Etsy account, as big as a franchise based non-profit, we are here to offer a rare kind of wealth. The wealth that freely feeds the creative mind. A treasure map, really. Because Scarcity is the lie that keeps us trapped in an abusive, but crumbling system. It is why I never went to art school for fashion design like I wanted, because I am not competitive within the standards of scarcity based heirarchies. I feared judgement and dismissal too greatly to even try to be more than a simple retail worker, assistant manager at best.
Let me tell you what kind of working education being in the School for Perpetual Scapegoats and Shy Fuckups via retail for 20 years creates in someone who doesn't realize they're an autistic savant with a special interest in fashion. It creates a PhD level master set of scientific research based skills in someone who knows every single way the fashion industry is currently failing future generations, globally and locally, and the ways we can survive the places that are crumbling, still enjoy fashion, but also embrace the sustainable life.
Trash Kingdom's dream is primarily accessibility focused fashion. "If it's inaccessible it's neither radical nor revolutionary." So we will be skipping the costly yoga retreats and pseudo eco-consciousness of our peers still clinging to the old, and continue to seek out the new and the genuine. We find it in the hearts of the tender weirdos and the clever magpies like us.
The #outsiderartists the upcyclers, the thrifters. Those of us discarded as too weird to fit in, we create a new world within our means. And it's really clever!
But we love the delicacy, the care, and the thoughtfulness of #couture . So... #thriftcouture , #trashkei for the young aesthetic meme kids and #trashkingdom are all dreams being planted here. 💖🌈💖
