Fash­ion made from trash on cat­walk

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

A cat­walk filled with up­cy­cled fash­ion de­lights will be the high­light at this week­end’s Tatura All Saints Angli­can Church fundraiser event.

Fash­ions Made From Trash will be held this Satur­day and peo­ple are en­cour­aged to make their own cre­ations ahead of the event.

Or­gan­iser Glen­daMcLeod said there would be a range of items on show, in­clud­ing cloth­ing, jew­ellery, ac­ces­sories and home­wares, with cre­ative seam­stresses strut­ting their de­signs on the cat­walk.

Ms McLeod said peo­ple had been en­cour­aged to cre­ate the items in the leadup to the event.

She said an en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­gram she took part in with Li­ons Vic­to­ria a few years go prompted her to come up with the idea.

‘‘I did some of this sort of stuff and it had been on my mind for years to do an event like this,’’ she said.

Ms McLeod said the event would work as a gen­eral fundraiser for the church, with money raised go­ing to­wards what­ever was needed.

‘‘It’s all about see­ing what you can do with your rub­bish,’’ she said.
