Trash International

Trash International was Cardiff's premier rubberwear emporium during the mid-80s. Located in the Wyndham Arcade it was frequented mainly by goths and kinky types who were into rubber. Its existence was relatively short-lived. The gear they sold included local fetish design labels 13AMP and WAW. Rubber mini-skirts would set you back £35. They also sold clothes from the Kooky label, which used a cheaper alternative to rubber consisting of a mixture of PVC and Lycra for that much desired shiny effect. Above is an advert for the shop and below is an item of their clothing modelled by Tracy Francis on location down the Docks.
