Trans­form­ing trash into flash

Show­cas­ing the use of cre­ative skills and imag­i­na­tion

Central Otago Mirror - - WHAT’S ON -

Cen­tral Otago’s cre­ative ge­niuses will wow fash­ion-lovers with their dis­play of cre­ations trans­formed from trash into flash.

The Trash­ion Show, a premier eco-arts event, demon­strates how art, us­ing cre­ative skills and imag­i­na­tion raises aware­ness about waste and re­cy­cling.

Or­gan­iser Heather McPher­son says cre­ation through in­no­va­tion of fash­ion items us­ing pre­dom­i­nantly re­cy­cled and pre­vi­ously used ma­te­ri­als was at the heart of show.

‘‘En­tries are a lit­tle bit more than last year - about 18 - and I think they are all amaz­ing again.’’

When: Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 14, 7.30pm. Where: Cromwell Col­lege Au­di­to­rium, Barry Ave, Cromwell Tick­ets: $25 and avail­able from the Cromwell iSite
