Trash used for a fashion statement
Young creators of fashion are being given the chance to showcase their talent and art at this year’s Schools’ Trash to Fashion Awards.
Organisers are calling for expressions of interest from young designers.
The awards (ST2F) are an annual event which help spread the word about recycling, reusing and reducing waste. They give pupils the opportunity to work on a creative project with an environmental twist, using recycled items to create high fashion and moveable art.
This year’s theme is ‘‘Celebrate Individuality’’ and encourages young designers to consider and celebrate what makes them unique.
The designers have until June to complete their garment.
The awards are organised
by Auckland Council and Keep Waitakere Beautiful Trust and are open to primary, intermediate and secondary pupils aged from 5 to 17.
Pupils can enter through schools or as individuals.
