4th Annual TRASHion Show Makes Repurposing Fashionable

February 25 Lynnhaven Mall Show to Feature Middle & High School Students

 

(Virginia Beach)  – On Saturday, February 25, this “junk-to-funk” runway fashion show, presented by Lynnhaven River Now and featuring both middle and high school students, will take the stage for the fourth year at center court in Lynnhaven Mall.

 

The show was created as a way for local students to show off their fashion sense while demonstrating an understanding of the value and importance of reusing things whenever possible. Using only repurposed materials, student designers and models partner to present original creations in a runway fashion show competition.

 

“This is a friendly competition among students whose creations are made from what they can rescue from trash cans or recycling bins,” said Jody Ullman, education coordinator for Lynnhaven River Now. “It’s also a fun way to teach us all about protecting our environment.”

 

The program will include a high school show starting at 1 p.m. emceed by Kathryn Barret (former WVEC Medical Editor) and a middle school program at 5 p.m. emceed by Kurt Williams (Anchor for WTKR).  Judges will present awards for creativity and style, and the crowd will be invited to vote for a special People’s Choice Award. In addition, the high schools will again vie for the traveling “Principal’s Pride Award” for overall school efforts to promote sustainability both on and off the runway. It was presented in 2016 to Landstown High School.

 

Cox, First Colonial, Landstown, Ocean Lakes, Tallwood and Renaissance Academy high schools, and Bayside, Brandon, Independence and Princess Anne middle schools will all be rocking the runway this year.

 

There will be entertainment by local schools between the shows, as well as music from Astro DJ.

 

Lynnhaven River NOW, celebrating its 15th Anniversary, is comprised of more than 8,000 members committed to a clean and healthy Lynnhaven River. Through public awareness, educational programs and restoration initiatives, LRNow works to identify and reduce pollution, engage the community and restore lost habitats.
