TRASHion Show

The Lynnhaven TRASHion Show

2015 Trashion Show

The 2018 TRASHion Show 

Middle & High Schools Competed February 24th at Lynnhaven Mall.

5th Annual TRASHion Show Turns Garbage into Glamorous Fashion

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 items 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 rethinking trash”.

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.
