PLASTIC bags, cardboard, bubble wrap, old newspapers, discarded CDs and candy wrappers . . .

Trash? Never. It is haute couture fashion.

It is time for aspiring fashion designers and avid recyclers to get trashy with the seventh annual Global Leadership Academy (GLA) Trashy Fashion Show that will hit the catwalk at the school on September 7.

If you have not entered yet, do not delay. With just five weeks left until GLA’s seventh fashion show, it is time to get the thinking caps on and plan those winning designs.

Outfits and accessories must be from recycled material only: business cards, packaging material, garbage bags, bottle caps, plastic bottles, tin cans, bubble wrap, or string.

Businesses and individuals in and around Jeffreys Bay can sponsor or enter a dress at a cost of R500.

A panel of judges will choose the winners.

Designers, who piece together exotic outfits from a wide and wild variety of recyclable materials, will compete for several cash prizes, including the Public’s Favourite Award. Other prizes will be awarded for the most original dress, the entrant with the most vibrant personality, and the most creative accessories.

The categories to compete in are 5 to 13 years and 14 to 50 years.

Apart from the fashion show, there will also be a night market, a drama performance and students showcasing their Eisteddfod performances, including song and dance.

The night market starts at 18:00, while the fashion show will take to the stage at 19:00.

The entry fee to the show is R20 for adults and R10 for children.
