"Trashion" designers sought for 5th Annual Trashy Fashion Show

Largo, Florida -- Applications are now being accepted for the 5th Annual Trashy Fashion Show, held at the Largo Cultural Center on Saturday, April 21 from 6 - 9 p.m.

Amateur eco-fashion designers can apply to showcase their 'trashions' or fashions created from items that would otherwise have been discarded. The Trashy Fashion Show is an educational event that celebrates Earth Day.

Participants of all ages are encouraged to think outside of the blue bin to create their wearable designs of at least 75 percent recycled or discarded items.

Interested participants must first complete an online interest application by Sunday, March 25 at LargoRecycles.com or by calling (727) 586-7424. After the interest application is submitted, participants are required to send a digital photo, description of their design and an environmental fact to accompany their design by Sunday, April 1 for consideration in the Trashy Fashion Show.

Students, adults, individuals and groups will compete for prizes and the Best in Show title of the Trashiest Designer. Prizes will be awarded to the best designs in four age-categories: Junior Designer (Grade-levels K-5), Teen/Tween Designer (Grades 6-8), High-End Designer (Grades 9-12), Adult Designer (Ages 18+).

This entertaining and educational event would not be possible without the support of local sponsors. Past sponsors, Midori Salon and Spa and Creative Contractors, have already committed this year.
