Fashionable Trash

Tarlton Senior Vice President Matt Pfund (right) was an esteemed judge in the Salvation Army’s 5th Annual Garbage Bag Gala, held July 15, with Tarlton as lead sponsor.

This is fashion as you’ve never seen it before, featuring clothing from 18 St. Louis-area designers using recycled materials, trash, duct tape and denim to dress their models. The event aims to raise environmental awareness and call attention to the plight of homeless men, women and children in the bi-state region.

Several Tarlton employees attended the gala in support of the cause.
