Take in the trash at GLA’s fashion show

2017-09-07 06:01

THE Global Leadership Academy (GLA) Trashy Fashion Show and night market is set to take place at the school on September 8.

Sporting upcycled recycled outfits ranging from street-style to country couture made from everyday trash, the show promises to be a fun-filled event for the whole fa-mily.

The designers and models not only created fashion and art, but also learned the importance of recycling and the value of the environment while showing their families and friends in attendance how much fun it can be to reduce, reuse and recycle.

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

The categories to compete are junior primary (1 - 8 years), senior primary (9 - 13 years), high school (14 - 18 years), and open (19 years and older).

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.

Food stalls will be available.

The doors open at 18:00 and the models will begin strutting the runway at 19:00. The entry fee is R20 for adults and R10 for chilldren.
