The 2018 Des Moines Trashion Show – Celebrate In Style


Both staff and students here are feeling overwhelmingly inspired and grateful after hosting the 2018 Des Moines Trashion Show on Sunday, May 6th.

We had an amazing turnout to raise funds and awareness for a fundamental human need, Clean Water. The Aveda Institute Des Moines took on the role this year of  hosting the event, but undoubtedly this is a collaborative effort that comes together thanks to our greater community and network.

Through this event we are excited to share that local participants raised over $15,000, which will go towards the Audubon Society and clean water projects throughout Iowa.

A huge THANK YOU to all the design teams both from the Aveda Institute Des Moines greater Iowa Aveda salons that participated. Volunteering your creativity and efforts is what makes the show fun and impactful.

We also owe a big shout out and thank you to Wooly’s Des Moines for DONATING their space (and they have done so for many years) to help support our mission and cause.

Local DJ Jeana Calvert was amazing and absolutely set the ‘tone’ for this show.

Additional thanks to in-kind donations from local businesses including Exile Brewing Co., Holiday Inn Des Moines Downtown – Mercy Area, Skintuitions by Christy, IONID, and Soleil Tan Spa.

Thank you to all of the attendees, volunteers and participants. Part of our mission is to give back to the world we live in – and this was a great way to celebrate in style.
